    omg, i dont know exactly what to expect.

    if one chick hatches and moves another egg that has already pipped, whats the outcome? is the other pipped egg going to die? [​IMG] i would feel horrible!

    also, how long till i can take them all out, iv heard 48 hours is fine? is this true?

    Can take up to 30 hours or more. Depends on how many eggs you have in there.
    Enjoy your hatch.

    Ooooo, congrats on the new chick:) Any pics?? I can't wait for my first pip! Already day 22 and nothing yet here, but I am expecting a late hatch due to some temp issues early on.
