    I've started to see movement at day 15, at that. Don't worry, though. Some chicks are just shy. [​IMG]

    They're pretty scrunched in the egg by day 18, but if you watch at the air cell you can often see them pushing against it.

    They have moved everytime I have checked but I just thought they were running out of space. Can't wait.
