    Welcome, I also have a real nice looking RIR boy. He also has a nice white leghorn out there. I found out, that no, white leghorn to RIR does not make a sex link. I will have to go and find that chart someone gave me on another thread.

    I just have the lid off. It is on to stay now until hatch time. It's in a room, on the floor. :)

    How long does it take for a chick to make an external pip after they have made an internal pip? I am asking because every now and again I hear peeping from the bator. (Internal pips) and was Wondering when I could expect an external pip.

    It can take them from an hour to a day, in my experience. They make the internal pip, get used to breathing air as their lungs fill, and rest with this new feeling.
