    How do you do this? The waiting is killing me.

    I hear an occassional chirp, peck and a few of the eggs wiggle.

    What do I do now? How long does it take? Does it happen fast? slow? [​IMG]

    I may need a drink:lau

    DO NOT OPEN THE INCUBATOR!!!! Just sit tight and wait for the pips, you will have babies before long.

    I went out to burn (I love fire) thought that would take my mind off egg watching.

    I have my 1st pip. [​IMG]

    Question. This is my first hatch ever!

    How long should it take a chick to free himself from the egg once it has starting piping?
