    I think I had 2 eggs chirping under my broodies at 9:00 am this morning. and I have 1 egg in the bator moving every once in a while but tiny movements. But im getting worried, and anxious(sp?) its day 21 and no external pips on any of them [​IMG] ACTUALLY its day 21 right now EXACTLY ALMOST WEIRD! I put the eggs under the broody December 31st 4:00 pm

    I GOT SMALL PIP, but question why is the pip at the narrow end of the egg?

    Don't worry, 21 days is an average, they may not hatch until tomorrow.
    As far as the pip on the small end, I've had that happen more than once and it turned out fine.
    Hang in there!

    I think you are a fine example of a qualified poultryologist. Your chickens love you and I hope you feel boosted... [​IMG]
