    I have 23 eggs due to hatch today. 9 BBS Orps from MissPrissy and 14 from my own eggs. No pips yet but it's early still.

    I HATE WAITING!!!

    LOL, yep, those BBS Orps are a bit lazy. They make me wait till the end of Day 21 sometimes.

    Quote:Yes it is, in a different incubator.

    My hatches in the Sportsman have always taken a day or two or three longer. I had buff orps from hinkjc that took until day 24 to pip.

    The waiting continues.....
