    Holly4: I am excited for you! I want to try incubating some chicken eggs this spring. I have to make an incubator first. Did you make your incubator, or did you buy? What are you hatching? Good luck, send some pics of your babies when they hatch.

    First time i hatched i heard my first peep 32.5 hours before the little guy hatched. that was 8 years ago and my baby just passed away. best chicken i've ever had. but as most people have said it all depends on many factors

    You guys are the best. I have 19 eggs in my incubator on day #20. Was checking the humidity before turning in and I thought I heard chirping. At first I thought I was going a little crazy, then I thought maybe it's a baby bird outside. Then I heard it again. Of course I had to say hello and guess who chirp again! It is amazing, just amazing. I never would have dream that a chick chirps before hatching.

    I went online to the backyardchickens website and of course I found this thread. You guys are the best resource a newbie can ask for. This is my second hatch, the first time I had my incubator in the basement, this time it's in one of my kitchen cabinets.

    Wish me luck tomorrow.

    Daniel
