    HI.
    First hatch!
    I have about 5 eggs that have pipped on day 20. Most have just cracked and not made a hole....there are 2 that are approaching the 24 hour mark with just cracks but no hole to breathe. my question is how long can their air cells support them without an actual hole? My humidity has between between 67-72% and temp at steady 100.

    Hi. well we now have 7 chicks that hatched today on day 20. They are all Blue Wheaten/Wheaten Ameraucanas...strong and healthy appearing thus far. Stay tuned there's several more pipped this evening. My 4 yr old son Jake is thrilled (-: Hoping to get better photos tomorrow too.
