    Hi all

    Excited would be an understatement..... But although its a fantastic sound of little cheeps I am a little worried...

    We are at day 21 and this is our first hatch attempt in a homemade incubator. I have increased the humidity to the required level for Pekin Chickens and the emp is presently 99.4F. The eggs have been set like this for 3 days and today we are hearing little cheeps but no movement as yet. We could have missed the little moves whilst making a coffee I suppose but we are not seeing anything else.

    Am I worrying a liitle to early or does everything seem normal... sorry as a newbie I want to be sure I am doing all I can to help our little friends out... I HAVE NOT OPENED THE BOX..lolol

    Thanks

    Darrin

    Give them time, they are cheeping, that's a good thing! You will have babies soon enough.
