    Are these your first chicks? Incubated or under a hen? Have you candled them?

If you have any questions about rearing the new peeps, the folks on this page are a tremendous help!https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/11/raising-baby-chicks.

    Generally they start pipping or hatching at 21 days. What breed are you trying to hatch? Were your temps correct throughout the process?
