    The over active chick that hatched awhile ago has successfully turned at least 3 of my "0's" over to "X's", and has knocked around a couple of the other eggs. That's not gonna be a problem, is it????

    I purposely leave some in the bator so they'll peep and knock around. The hatch goes much faster than if I remove all the chicks at once.
