    We're partway through Day 20. No visible pips. [​IMG] Jody, your grandchickies are making me wait, LOL. When do yours usually start hatching? I know not to expect my Blue Orps to just start jumping till the beginning of Day 21 and sometimes even the middle (they are lazy bums), but my other breeds seem to get the party started on Day 20.

    We really need to take incubating lessons from you! Ours never seem to pip until the end of day 21 and hatch on day 22. We have always felt like our temps were even a little high so not sure what the prob is.

    But good luck with your babies!!! Can't wait to see them.
