    Okay so this morning I have two BO's that are pip'd and now I can't stop watching the bator for more progress!!! What do you guys do to keep your brain busy so you don't keep checking on them ever 15 min? I am driving myself crazy!

    I don't know, but let me know if you find out! We just set five guinea eggs in a homemade incubator Friday. This will be our first hatch. I think I keep checking them every five minutes, and they've still got 26 days to go!

    What a fun thing to have them pipped! Enjoy watching them pop out, and good luck with your hatch.

    I am right there with you, I have two eggs in and they have both pipped and I am going crazy. Went to church and when I got home there is no progress but I can hear the peeping and see the little beak, this is so hard and also my first hatch!
