    Did you already hatch other chicks and did they hatch on time?

    OK so when did you start your count for days of incubation? Do you have a plan to get this little one a friend, because they do not like to be alone and will tell you so, LOUDLY. Do you have a brooder set up to keep this one warm, in the hopes that it hatches? So many questions, I know.

    March 6 I started the incubation process and I don't plan to get another one and yes the brooder is ready.

    You are only on day 22 today if you put the egg in the bator on March 6 and actually only on day 21 if you waited 24 hrs after putting the egg in to start you day count. Your chick should be along any time now hopefully. Good luck.
