    Okay believe it or not the last 3 weeks went by very quickly, but this has been the longest day ever. [​IMG] We moved our eggs into the hatcher last night. Went to bed and i had a dream that all my chicks started hatching at the same time and they all came out within 5 minutes. Once they dried off they were HUGE. about the size of 10 week old chicks LOL. I thought to myself, WOW how could such a big chick come out of such a small egg. And then I woke up. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I got out of bed and checked on my eggs and they were just sitting there. no chick, no peeps, no pips.

    So all day I have been checking on them. While I was gone to get my hair done, hubby says he could hear faint peeping coming from the bator. I have yet to hear it but I hope that means something will be happening soon. This could be a long 3 days [​IMG]

    Question: If you can hear peeping from in the shell, does that mean they have broken into the aircell, And how long can they live with the aircell before suffocating?

    About that peeping,,,,, I've never heard any peeping at all until they've opened the shell! Good luck, looking forward to the hatchlings!

    Well, I have looked into the bator about 30 times in the last 3 hours [​IMG]

    We have some progress I guess but not much. We now have 4 different eggs pipped but just very tiny cracks/holes. Cant see too much of anything. I will take some pics once things get going.

    I have a feeling I won't be seeing to much before I go to bed. I just hope I can get some sleep. [​IMG]
