Greetings!
I have a hatch going on right now and there are a number of eggs that have pipped at the bottom of the egg ! Should I be concerned?
I am using the Nurture Right 360 incubator. Thanks in advance -

They should be OK. But a number of eggs...that is strange. If the eggs are pointy and tapered more than usual be prepared to assist when they zip as they may have trouble getting out of the egg. Don't rush it; you don't want to open the incubator unless you have to.

Thanks,I can see 4 - I'm happy to assist - we'll see where they are in the morning.
I have a nurture 360 - any experience with that incubator?
