    I had one pip this morning on day 20 as well! Maybe there will be an Easter chickie! Congrats on your first batch? Can you hear it chirping? My incubator is chirping up a storm, I always find it weird to hear chirping eggs

    That's perfectly normal. Day 21 is a guideline for hatch day, so they often start the process on Day 20! Congratulations on your first pip :woot

    That's so exciting, the rest have mine haven't pipped at all yet. I guess they are going to take the full 21 days.

    Post some pics if you can!
