    We bought the little chickubator from rural king and decided to try to hatch some bobwhites over the Christmas holiday. It's day 25 and I am going batty staring at them. I stop the rolling at 20 days and they have been in lock down since. I'm not quite sure what I'm looking for other than a chick coming out of an egg. I was getting impatient as human nature often does and then 3/4 eggs got tiny black dots on them. I'm positive they weren't there before. But besides that idk. I'd appreciate some tips to let me know they will hatch or I made scrambled eggs the last 25 days. [​IMG]thanks[​IMG]
