This is only my second time using our incubator to hatch chicken eggs. The first time I had 5 viable eggs and only 2 hatched and two made a pip but dried out on the inside and died. This go-around I made sure that lockdown which started yesterday have plenty of water in the incubator so that the humidity level was good. Friday morning at 7 a.m. there was a pip in one of the eggs already which according to my calculations is about 3 days too early for hatching. The chickens should hatch on Monday which is day 21. As you can see from this picture from the initial Pip this chick has made some progress however it has been 34 hours since the initial pip. Should I be concerned.
