    I don't hear peeping and there are no pips or rocking. Shouldn't these things happen today?

    ETA: PEEPING AND ROCKING, WOOT!!!!!

    EDIT 2: I have a pip! woo!

    EDIT 3: my first chick has hatched early and his naval was sticking out. eventually the entire yolk came out and now he is on the brink of a paiful death. I NEED TO KNOW ANY METHODS OF EUTHANASIA OTHER THAN CUTTING/CHOPPING. I can't stand him being in pain.

    Its day 20 for me and I have nothing either. Didn't last time @ day 20 either. I'm not worried yet [​IMG] At day 22 I'd be worried.

    thank you for easing my worries. this is my first hatch and would be devestated if I lost these eggs.

    Thanks!

    Of course I will.

    Oh yeah, don't open that incubater lol. Try not to look at it too much either or it will temp you to open it. I swear if I look at mine too much, I start noticing things that I wanna "fix" haha.

    Happy Hatching Vibes!

    Now, back away from the incubator...... days are not specific! You may get hatches on day 18 - or day 25! So go sit on your hands somewhere else. My best hatch? I had to run errands, came home to a bunch of wet little chicks trying to find their feet.
