Ok, I have 10 runners and 3 pekins in the bator. 2 of the pekins hatched early, maybe because they were older eggs than the runners. ? (which were shipped to me) I stupidly took the 2 hatched pekins out after they dried because the others really arent due until tomorrow. So anyway, the pekins are fine. I have one runner who has pipped the shell, but he did that 24 hrs ago and seems to be taking forever to zip. Now the membrane appears to be drying out, and I am worried he is stuck. Meanwhile, another runner has started to pip. I am not going to disturb the rest of the eggs at this point and risk losing them to try to get the zipping guy out. So, my question is, Is it normal for runners to take a loooooong time to zip? I really hope this guy makes it. He looks like he will be chocolate colored. Have I completely messed up the rest of the hatch by opening the bator?
