    Within the next 24 hours if all goes well, though some take a bit longer. Good luck!

    thanks but guess what!? it letrally just cracked the shell 7 hours after i posted this and then it hatched FULLY the next 2 hours in less than 20 minutes! and the moment it hatched it rested for a few minutes and then started chirping like crazy and lifting his head and trying to get out of the incubator! that is one strong chick! its yelloe with 2 black stripes and the pinkest legs ive ever seen! very well balanced!
