    Hi there, I'm using the brinsea advance and it's my first time. I have 6 chicken eggs and I'm down to day 1. Is day 1 considered day 20 of incubation? Will I see any signs today?could they hatch? I feel like I'm spending most of my time looking at them to see if there's any pipping!! Thanks super excited

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Are you using the mini advance? If so I would say yes you would be on day 20 of incubation. They could pip and yes they could hatch!! 21 days is just a guide though and they will hatch when they are ready I'm afraid. They dont take into account the worry they cause us!!

    I've locked some eggs down today and I have been constantly looking for wobbling or pips but nothing yest here.

    Good luck with your hatch and enjoy BYC :frow
