    ok so was really diapointed because i thought none of my chicks where going to hatch it is my first time incubating. and there 1 day past due. and where i live its like midnight and i was laying in the floor watching a movie and i thought i herd something and i was like no way im just tired but my incubator has got 2 windows and one has started to pip or peep. i was wondering how long it will take to hatch and if there is anything i need to do???! i will post pic if anyone would like to see it hatch!!! im so excited im not going to be able to sleep all night lol!!

    awesome! I remember the first time I hatched a chick, I was lying on the floor peering into the bator all day long! I'll never forget when the first chick popped out, as soon as it hatched, it pooped! [​IMG]
