    How exciting...you will have cute little fuzzy butts to play with over the weekend. It is totally normal to hear peeping...that can get quite frantic sounding at time...fight that urge and don`t open your incubator. You are almost there!

    I know how she feels My last egg has pipped and I have to keep getting up to check. I only had 4 eggs that was fertile and when this baby hatches it will be 100% hatch. Hardest thing to do is not help, but like everyone says dont touch the bator. They will make it out. sometimes it just takes awhile.

    Yeah!!! Congratulations...re: the egg that was moving and has stopped. This too is normal. It is lots of work getting positioned and ready to pip and hatch. It might just be resting for the final stretch. Did your daughter get to watch the hatch? It is such a fabulous experience for kids.
