    Today is our hatch date and we're seeing some movement but no sounds (pecking or peeping) how long does this stage usually take before we see more action?

    First, what kind of eggs are you hatching and when was the incubation process started? Chicken eggs take about 21 days to hatch. Sometimes they start hatching as soon as day 18, sometimes as late as day 23 or 24.

    We have all been there .... the anxious time! [​IMG] Really though ... you said you see movement, so it won't be long! Good luck with your hatch! Just be patient.
