    You can really hear heartbeats with a stethescope? I never thought of that.

    Sounds to me like you're doing ok. They can take longer to pip if your temps were low at all. That much I know. I would just leave them completely alone till day 23. Then it's ok to start worrying. LOL

    I know it's kinda cool to hear the little hearts...I was taking my DH's blood pressure one eve and I had been worrying about the eggs and I thought why not try.. I have no idea why I never thought if it before...thanks for reassuring me...i have never had this much trouble, Dh says that maybe the mama hens are getting a little old and we may want to use younger eggs next time... thanks again..[​IMG]
