    That is really early for an egg to be hatching. The earliest I have had any of mine pip is 3 days. What kind of incubator do you have and what temp are you at?

  7. Hi! It's not *bad*, but obviously the incubation process had started before you thought *you* started the eggs.

    That's what I was thinking. Maybe it started incubating before you put it in the incubator. Maybe the hen sat on it some or it was so hot outside that it started developing.
