    first time trying to hatch eggs. We have a broody Banty Cochin sitting on 7 eggs and today ( day 21) we heard peeping and saw a pip! We had to quickly and gently lift Mama to see. She's very sweet and did not seem to mind us picking her up, but we don't want to disturb the process. Now we are leaving her alone, but its so hard! I'm dying to know what is going on under there.
