Our chicken eggs are wiggling! How much longer will we wait? This is so exciting!
Hopefully within the next 24 hours. Keep an eye on them, some can pip and zip quick!
They are wiggling a little early then I thought we would see them hatching Tuesday
Should they wiggle consistently?
You will also hear them peeping too. Remember eggs are expected to hatch on the 21st day but depending on conditions they may hatch later or earlier!
They aren't wiggling as much right now as they were last night & our other chicks that are in the house are so loud now that they are awake I don't know if they are cheeping anymore. I guess I will have to be patient
I am amazed at the pecking sound... I didn't think I would be able to hear that.
I haven't seen them moving around that much today. Are they more active at night? I haven't seen any crack in the shell yet, just seen movement and heard some cheeping (I think it was them and not the chicks I also have) 21 days starts at 10 PM tonight. Were they just sort of getting ready last night? I will be sad if at least some of them don't make it. Thanks for the newbie help
My husband and I are new to incubation and last night we noticed quite a bit of wiggling on 4 of our 5 remaining eggs. We have had 2 power outages during this incubation and lost some of our eggs because we didn't have a back-up power supply. We are hopeing for these to hatch but hope is runnin low. We made our incubater from one of my husbands old ice chests and have pretty much used this forum and web site as a sort of "how-to" guide. Today is day 20 for our eggs.... Hope to be able to post about hatchin chickies in a day or 2.... or 3...... lol
Be aware that not all eggs hatch on day 21. Sometimes they might be early and sometimes later. Don't panic. They might not hatch for another day or so. Leave the chicks in the incu for the three days before they need food if all of them have not hatched and others are working on getting out.
I wish you well,
