I've had several wrong way pippers hatch just fine on their own.

I do think if I were to keep it, I would hardwire it to the wall cuz i am not crazy about the cord. I think I have to make myself a couple now!
I'm not crazy about the cord either, but love it otherwise. I agree on hiding it behind a desk or hard wiring it.

Should I still turn them as often? Do I need to worry about the eggs exploding if they are bad or not until later? I plan to candle them next on day 10, is that ok? thanks for helping us newbies :)
This one is cracked, i resealed the crack with polish like someone suggested but idk??
this one is super porous and feels light in my hands
They shouldn't explode, I've left clears in my incubator before until hatch. (I don't always candle until the end) Now, if it's seeping, get rid of it. If you are in doubt, leave it in the incubator.
