    So today is day 20 - almost day 21 now - and still no pips, but they are all rolling around like crazy! I've never actually seen eggs roll before - I wish I knew how close they were to pipping based on the rolling. I swear I heard a few peeps earlier, but I can't see any eggs with pips. . . I'm hoping an egg has a pip under it. I'm ready for chicks! It sort of like torture waiting on them to hatch!

    its horrible torure waiting for them to hatch! If you are hearing peeping means they have pipped through the aircell and wont be long before they pip on the outside. This hatch I just did nothing on day 21. I was worried I had a temp spike at day 19, but on day 22 they hatched. They are 3 days old now and doing great. Eating drinking poo machines. Keep watching bet it wont be long. From my experience once that first one hatches the others will follow pretty fast.

    Congrats on your hatch! I'm hoping to see a pip before I go to bed, but I'm starting to think that may not happen. This is like pulling teeth!

    might as well just say it takes 21 plus days as I just went through my first ever hatch and the waiting is insane... but so darn awesome when they come out!

    Rolling around! That sounds so exciting. What breed are they?
