    I have 2 eggs due today and not a sign of hatching from either. I broke the chicken law this morning by candling because when I put em in lockdown I wasn't all sure they were alive. I saw one move and the other I could still see thick veining so it must be alive (absorbing blood I guess). But I haven't touched them since. Hens aren't perfect either, the day my other brood hatched I only noticed pips after taking my hen back inside!

    Anyways I'm super nervous. What started as stick 2 eggs in the bator turned into "oh gosh I'm excited for chicks." the eggs were a little long and weird but developed okay. Of course now with no pips in day 21 I'm nervous but some hatch late right? AAAAHHH I NEED SUPPORT!!!

    *runs off to hug my other chick*


    Also they are eggs from this weird head tufted (not like araucana tuft) hen (i think she's cool >.>) and a gorgeous white ee/ameraucana roo. I really want to see them hatch T_T

    It is not uncommon for eggs to take a little longer. Temps on the lower end can cause the eggs to develop a little slower. Good luck. :fl

    Thank you. ^^ pretty sure temps are right on but they were definitely alive when I checked earlier just still veiny. So I'll leave em alone with that. I hope my chickies hatch~ ^^
