    I got up today to check the eggs and see what I believe is a pip. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I figured my hatch day wrong as yesterday and was so worried my eggs were dead. Guess hatch day is supposed to be starting around 5:00 pm tonight so this chick is right on schedule! My kids will be home from school to watch as well. This is awesome! [​IMG]

    Come on baby chicks! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Wahooo!!

    I figured my hatch date wrong too - it's really today, and the one that hatched yesterday was early.

    Why do you pencil mark the air cells, if you don't mind my askin?

    Quote:Utah is a very dry area and I wanted to track the air cell for humidity reasons. I know....weird. I think it will also help me be able to tell if the chicks pip in the cell or not.
