Well, sort of... I hatched a chick a few years ago in my classroom incubator. But it feels like the first time ... I can't stop watching them! I have the incubator home today and there are 5 eggs. Today is officially day 20 since they were put in the incubator, but they sat at around 70 degrees (RT) for two days prior to incubation. They are red-crosses from a friend of mine's dad. They started chirping pretty loudly this morning and the first one pipped around noon. There has been a teeeny bit of progress with that one. I can see it moving around and chirping, but no change in hours. I noticed around 3:30 that another one pipped, but the indentation goes in rather than out ... is that normal?? I don't hear any more pecking or chirping from that egg. A third egg is pipped and starting to zip ... its furiously pecking and chirping. Feel good about that little guy, but the other 2 have me a bit concerned ... thoughts?? I'm nervous to go to sleep later and wake to no more chirping ...
