    Hi there, 3 of my 5 orpington eggs have hatched and are in the brooder but there is no sign of the other 2 even pipping. How long do I wait for them? I have had to open the incubator briefly to take the hatched chicks out but humidity is still at a steadyish 65%. Is there anything I should be doing??

    Some can take longer give it a few more days. What type of Orpingtons did you hatch??
