    There will be a small minute cracked area at first I know we could not wait either and when we candled them day 21 we could see movement within the eggs try not to look though as tempting as it may be!!!

    When the chick pips most the time you will see a small crack in the shell but it will be push up thats from the chick pushing the shell up then once you see that after a little while then you will see a small hole and the chicks beak [​IMG]

    Good Luck and keep us all posted
