    I had my first egg pip today! [​IMG] Is it normal for the chick to rest a bit after pipping? I thought I heard a little peeping as well, but I'm not sure. [​IMG] I'm so excited! [​IMG] Don't know how I'll work tonight! I'm hoping more will have pipped by morning! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    AWESOME. That's so cool! Yeah, the chick can get tired after a while in it's shell. I had a pip once, and she rested for about 1/2 an hour before she resumed her cracking. [​IMG]
