    Make sure your humidity is up 60-70% for chicken eggs, don't open the bator, and remember a watched egg never hatches, LOL.

    My first hatch I had most of my eggs hatch on day 18, some say thats too early, but I had no issues, 22 out of 23 hatched and grew up to be heathy teenagers!Number 23 quit around 14 days.

    Good luck, have fun!
