    Ok I am on day 21, with 1 pip. Do I need to open the vents? or when do you do that?

    I usually open a vent after one has hatched

    Oh that's good to hear. I was worried I maybe should have opened one already.
    Thank you!

    Angela, I'd leave the vent in, it sounds perfect.

    Steve, are you updating your other thread? What's going on? [​IMG]
