    Yes, as long as the shell isn't pipped thru, you should be fine. Just don't dilly dally, as my mom would say. [​IMG]

    Hey, chickenpeep! Congrats! I moved my incubator into the bathroom to really bump up the humidity and a second egg started to pip! Yay! [​IMG]

    Put the coffee on ... I have the feeling we're in for a long night!
