    Out of 12 eggs, 7 have hatched,there are still 4 that have pipped and 1 that is due to hatch tomorrow. Can the babies that have hatched already go without food and water until the last hatch? They seem pretty hunger right now...and I don't dare open the bator yet. I know that at least one of the pips will hatch soon(I see the lil' beak pecking at the shell a bit). The ones that are already hatched are pecking at each others feet and the floor of the bator. Will they be ok?

    The chicks are okay for three days from the yolk in their abdomen. Good luck!

    Quote:As soon as I can take some pics I will. They are adorable. I just love them(noisey lil' tykes though lol).I have misplaced the cord that connects my camera to my computer so that I can transfer the pics . I will have to look for it soon. I will be taking pics when they have all hatched. I can't wait to see what the others look like.
