    I wasn't excited because I didn't want to set myself up for disappointment, since this was my first hatch, all the eggs had broken air cells and a bunch stopped developing at 8-10 days, including one rotten one. But they're in lockdown...today is day 20. And an egg is not where I left it. I moved all my eggs so I can see them through the window. And I checked and one had rolled away from the others. It could be nothing. Maybe the grate is sloped, or I bumped it...but I doubt it. So, now I'm excited because I have a glimmer of hope.

    Don't lose hope! I was so sure that I messed up my first hatch that when my DH told me that we had a pip, I didn't believe him. Mine wound up hatching a couple of days late so don't give up even if they don't hatch tomorrow. Good signs if your egg has moved and it probably has! GOOD LUCK! [​IMG]
