    I candled my eggs tonight( I didn't know when they would hatch they were rescued eggs) and one of them was striking against the air sac! It wasn't through yet but this is my first hatch so I was wondering when it would get into thr cell and then when to expect the external pip. Any ideas?

    I am terrible for having to touch and 'play' with my eggs. [​IMG]

    I usually listen to them a day or so before anticipated hatch. When I hear scratching inside the shell, most of the time I have a pip within 12-24 hours and then hatch within another 24.

    Yesterday I had noise inside an MFC and this morning pip and half a zip!

    Happy Hatching!
