    Probably not yet. You might hear peeping before you see movement, and that will probably be closer to Day 21 unless your heat was up a little high or you have little eggs, and it is closer to day 20.

    Well have fun! It is such a treat to see your first chicks hatch! And it is still magical after many more hatches! But, the best part is watching my first-graders see it for the first time in their lives!

    Adorable!!!! I'm loving the pictures with greenery. It is snowing hard here right now! The ducks are precious! I sure wish I could have some at my place, but we freeze up and I have no moving water for them to enjoy.
