    I have one egg that started chirping about 11 hours ago but no crack yet at all. Should I step in and help make a little pip?

    Egg hatching can take a long time, sure you can do some encouraging piping but thats just about it, i wouldnt help hatch it. If its not strong enough to hatch by its self, it probably wont make it

    This was at 6:00 p.m. It's now 11 p.m. here and pretty much looks the same although it's a bit more unzipped now. [​IMG]
