    I went out to the coup today to check on my broody hen and I think one of the eggs is hatching. I checked each egg and one - nothing, two - movement, three - a small hole at the end of the egg. How long does it usually take to hatch out after they make a hole? Did I hurt anything by moving the eggs this morning?
    OH, this is so exciting:D

    Congrats! [​IMG]

    most the time it takes 24 hours from pip to hatch and since you know there hatching don't lift the hen up anymore.. she has to stay down on them to keep the humidity up so they all can hatch [​IMG]

    Good Luck and hope to see some pics soon! [​IMG]
