    So it is my first time hatching an egg or even having my very own baby chicks on our new homestead.

    Had my first pipe around 5pm today [​IMG] and that got me thinking, for those of you who have hatched before,

    What was the quickest time from pipe to hatch? What was the longest?

    I know it can take a while - but I haven't read exactly time frames some have had

    Nah, it's fine. I don't know, but I thought that it might help to clarify, so that others can answer.

    Shortest pip to hatch...about 10 minutes...longest almost 48 hours.

    shucks. I thought this was a thread about a new incubator/egg turner design involving sections of PVC pipes. [​IMG]
