    This egg pipped around midnight last night, this morning around 8-9 o'clock it started the process what zipping (I assume that's what's going on!) but has been like this every since. So we're at or nearing 12 hours. Do I do anything?

    Considering that this post is 5 hours and 13 minutes old..Has your little guy hatched? Or is he/she still in the shell? [​IMG]

    I broke away the shell just enough that if it needed to get out it could. It was late so I went to bed and at 4 am got up and he was out as well as one other and a third one was just hatching as I got there.

    9 hatched out of 12 eggs in a little giant incubator, not bad for a first timer!!
