    I got 3 little bantam eggs on day 19. I am using the egg carton method. I came home from work on a lunch break and can hear one peeping and see one rocking back and forth...no pips yet! OMG this is killing me! How long till it pips? [​IMG]

    It's a good thing i have to go back to work....hope there are fuzzy butts when I get back! [​IMG]

  2. They will probably be out when you get home. Unless they are stubborn little ones and shy! Good luck on your hatch!

    Five hundred thousand years until they pip.....at least it will seem that way. Soon you have this [​IMG] but it will seem like forever. You'll probably have your first chickie tomorrow.

    Ok this egg is still peeping, I'm worried...- how long can that chick live in there without pipping? :eek:
