I'm in the same boat as you, except I'll be day 20 at 7:00 tonight. I tried a stethoscope last night on them but it just didn't work.

If only I could just hear a little peep....

i am with you on this as well. I pipped the fat end of the egg and the baby is kicking in the membrane so hopefully he will hatch tonight or tomorrow

I candled one and he has not reached the membrane yet, but he was moving. So maybe tomorrow. I was afraid to bother the air sac I felt I was better to leave it alone.

I only did it to one to make sure they are still alive. He is kicking up a storm so I hope he is trying to make his way to the air sack. I hope you get some hatches to equine. I dont want both of us to not have anything

Still nothing but I candled one of the white amercaunas and they were moving pretty good. I will just leave them alone and wait. Dh told me we are going out to dinner to get me away from the eggs.
