    Today is day 21 and he has a nice hole in the egg and a crack all the way to the bottom.... I can see his beak pointing upward ... So it looks like his body is on top and he is laying on his neck... Does this sound right... Thanks to all

    I wouldn't worry to much as long as he is making progress, here's a photo of one of mine that hatched Wednesday that maybe in just about the same position as yours.

    its 1:30 pm here and there has been no progress since 7:00am this morning... Am I just stressing? I think I might have messed up .. Yesterday when I seen the small crack I got exited And turned the egg just a little to see it better... I then realized I should not have done that.... Think I should just keep waiting? Thanks guys...

    I have Canon PowerShot but I can't get good closeups. Any suggestions???

    Here is a pic from a video I took of one of my chicks hatching.

    Mine also doesn't take good close up inside the incubator, I am thinking maybe the lighting, and the windows have to much of a reflection. But just guessing
