    With the girls!
    today is day 20 of hatching! I have already seen some peep holes, but should I expect anything else? Also, how long after the peep hole should I expect the chick? Thanks!

    Congrats! Chicks can hatch in a matter of a few hours after pipping, or they might not start zipping for a good 24 hours after pip. So in theory, any time between now and 24 hours. [​IMG] The good news is once they transition from pip to zip, the zip shouldn't take that long to be completed.
