    Love the site with the cam everything looks nice and clear and easy to see.

    If today is day 21 and you have some starting to pip dont worry it could take them 12-24 hours to come out or so ..

    my own piece of heaven
    I had my first batch of chicks hatch out on Sunday and it took them a good amount of time to get out of the eggs. My first one pipped about 6 Sat night and by the next morning, I had 6 babies. The rest were hatched out by the next morn. I had one that took about 18 hours to get out. Good luck
