    Hi, I have 8 eggs sitting in an octagon 20 advanced ex.

    One hatched exactly on day 21, a lovely little black pekin (really fluffy little feet!), oh and another which promptly died [​IMG].

    Now the other eggs, some i can hear peeping, i believe this means they will be here soon?..how soon...
    And the others which arnt peeping, does this mean tehy wont hatch..

    Be patient.

    ... and don't open the bator until the first has been out 18 hours.
