    Have yet to see any sign that there life imminent. IS this normal? Have been reading that some people see no signs till they actually start to hatch. The 2 eggs are in an incubator.

    Nervousness and excitement are beginning to take a hold of me. (I am also on the way to hospital as birth partner for my friend) So hoping for 3 babies in the next 24hours or so!

    Lots of the eggs I've hatched didn't show any sign of life until the chicks started pipping and on a few occasions I left an egg in the incubator, with no sign of pipping, came back after an hour or 2 and found a newly hatched chick! Good luck with the hatch and the birth. Hope both experiences go well!

    Ok, so we have a few more days. My kids will be upset as we have everything ready to go. Will go and buy some 1 day olds if nothing happens. Thanks.
