    Yes, lots of movement and chirps. I'm very impatient but I know better than to try and help. I've already read up on that quite a bit. :) Thank you for the advice though! I can't wait to see this little chick. I'm so excited!:celebrate:love

    Something went wrong... She didn't make it and I'm completely devastated.

    I just wanted to thank you all for your help and support. She looked like a perfect little healthy chick I just don't know why she didn't hatch. We are thinking about making a new and improved incubator and giving it another go. This was not a planned incubation as I explained before our hen stopped sitting on the eggs so the "incubator" definitely could have been better. My 2 (almost 3) year old was so excited for it to hatch. He called it his baby egg and he was always telling it he loved it. It's so so so sad. I just can't help but blame myself for whatever went wrong. :(Again thank you all.

    :hugs :hugs

    You tried and gave it a chance, more than it would have had if you hadn't tried... that's in no way 'doing something wrong'... glad you are going to plan out and try again... you'll get chicks the next time, you'll see...
