    notice my first Pip. Today around noon. It's going on seven and now I've got a second little trying to break thru. What is a time line from first Pip to hatch??? I'm pumped this is the first time I've done this and so excited there is something inside my eggs. Just nervous everything goes good from here on out [​IMG]

    Up to 24 hours and yes it is nerve wracking. Sit on your hands and enjoy the show.

    I had one wait 36 hrs! [​IMG] Talk about a nail bitter. I was a mess! It came out just fine. Sit on those hands! Just keep an eye on temp and humidity.

    Yeah, had three little chicks when I awoke this am. I'm leaving them in encubator for a bit. Recommendations on length? chicks are running around all over the place, Q- Will they hurt other eggs? Thanks
