    How many days did your hatch take to complete? Starting from lock down until the last chick hatched. (No staggered hatch results please).

    Day 18 lockdown went into effect at around 11pm. Day 21 hatch started at around 8am (that I know of...the peeping woke me up!) Then the last one hatched out at around 4:30-5pm. 6 eggs gave results of 100% hatch.

    Mine typically finish on day 21 or 22, depending when they start. I had one recent hatch (the only one this year) that hatched on day 20, but that is not usual and related to the breeding more than anything.

    I lock-down in the middle of day 18. By the end of day 21 all have hatched. Most of the time they start pipping at the beginning of day 21 and within 15-20hrs, they all have hatched.
