Question for all you experts out there. I just got home from work to check on the eggs. The one that's farthest along (shadowing started, oh, probably a day and a half ago)... I think it pipped internally. There are random shadows appearing and disappearing at the front of the dip, and at the back near the top, there is a wide shadow that comes to a point almost at the middle of the fat end of the egg. Thing is, it's nowhere near as clear as, for example, the internal pip pic on Pete's tutorial.
On top of it all, it peeped! Does that mean it must have pipped internally, in order to have air to peep? And not just one peep. It's a noisy little bugger. If I put my ear to the egg, I can hear what I think is breathing, but also a squelchy sound (maybe because it didn't lose enough moisture?). Do I now jack up the humidity? I'm sure if I just sat down and read through everything again, I'd find the answer, but my brain is mush after a long work day, and I'm a really anxious first timer! This pip, if it is indeed that, happened sometime today. No telling how long ago. How long until I should expect an external pip and/or how long before I'd need to "help" by making a tiny hole in the end? I know helping can go very very wrong, and would rather not if it doesn't need it, ya know?
I'd add a pic, but hubby isn't home yet, and I can't wield light, egg, and camera simultaneously.
