    21 days almost to the minute! I put them in the Little Giant at 4:00 PM 21 days ago and at 4:00 the first chick emerged! I have 6 more pips, but 24 eggs doing nothing. I candled them all at 14 days and all had development so I am hoping for more pips overnight. The chicks are mutts, coming from a local farmer who has RIR, Barred Rock, White Leghorn and something else I can't remember. This chick is yellow with black on the tail. A real cutie. The next one is almost out and appears to have a lot of black on it. No wonder this is addicting!
