    chickenboy1993 I was wondering how your hatch was going this time. I guess if you're hearing them you are doing well. [​IMG]

    Congrats to you and the babies, remember not to open the bator and enjoy watching them hatch!

    No worries... I heard my first set of chicks chirp for almost 24 hours before I saw a pip.
