    This is my first hatch ever and I am sooo NURVUS! I am next to my broody at all times! The oldest egg is on day 23 and I am so worried,I heard it tapping but not peeping, is that normal? How long till it hatches IF it hatches? I'm exited and terrified at once!

    Relax, your broody knows what she's doing (although I have no idea how exactly!!) - go to bed, and check in the morning, I'll bet there'll be fuzz peeping out at you from under a wing!
