    Hello there. I am doing my first hatch here in northern Alberta. I borrowed my girlfriends bater along with a dozen undated eggs and 20 I selected from under her hens two days ago. 3 of my "mystery" eggs that her 10 year old put in without dating are rocking tonight. So I guess I am gonna be a chicken mom sooner than I thought. Yikes. I remember feeling like this Christmas Eve as a kid. My brooder is ready. I think I am ready[​IMG][​IMG]

    No I had no idea. Found this site searching "how long after movement do eggs hatch". I will have to get used to navigating the page.

    I was hoping for a little fuzz ball this am but nope. My question is how do I hand turn the three day old eggs when I am not supposed to open it for the ones that are moving?
