    Only one egg has pipped and it has no progress since the initial pip spot. It used to be peeping a lot now it is only peeping ocasionally and extremly faintly.

    Should I help it?

    Probably just resting. Many times they pip, then rest and don't hatch until much later (like 12-24 hours). Sometimes it's just a chick that is not strong enough to make it through the hatch, but usually they're just resting.

    right after I posted I fell I asleep and when I woke a few minutes ago the chick has hatched. It was a clean hatch and the chick looks to be white.

    I'll get some pics as soon as I find my camera.....

    corey, are you opening the incubator any in the last few days, i am confused to the poor hatches, unless postal mistreatment, they are packed well and running high fertility here at the house still. i am good and confused... lol

    like always if you want somemore i can do it for shipping charge in your area probally around 6 bucks.
