    One just made it out while I went for a quick drive!

    It's just laying on its belly now, it has knocked all the eggs around so it must have been up and about but I'm worried!

    2nd one is out, a Barnevelder. It has a piece of shell following it as a fine piece of membrane is stuck to its backside, hopefully it drops off soon. Can that be normal?

    The membrane broke and it's free. Seems posting here is good luck, as soon as I do the chick does something to show it's fine

    Day 20 and all is quiet. There's no sign of anything happening. The four I hatched last month came early (all pipped on 19 and hatched on 20) so naturally I'm anxious for this to get going!
