    Today is the 20th day of my incubation of 12 bantam chicken eggs and i read that they hatch on day 19/20 and there has not been a pip yet. However the eggs are moving and i have candelled the eggs before and they are developing. I know the answer to this will probably be that i just need to be patient however if you can help please do

    Hi there :)

    I have only ever had bantie hatches under a broody and while I have read that they can sometimes be on the 19th or 20th day, mine have always been the 21st or 22nd.

    Good luck with them :)

    I am awaiting 4 Jersey Giants. It's day 20 and I have heard my first chirp, and egg has started to be pecked at. Getting well excited how long do you leave them with out helping them come out of the egg if needed ?
    I bought a box to raise them off eBay with light and food. Do I wet food to mush ??
    Any help appreciated many thanks
