    Eggs have been wobbling periodically all morning. A few minutes ago, I heard quiet chirping for a few seconds

    Starting to hear more chirping now. No progress on the first 2 eggs that had pipped, eggs still wobbling every now and then

    LOL, my last chicken hatch I had 3 pip and they didn't start to zip till 1am. I stayed up to watch 3 out of 4 eggs hatch(4 didn't make it). I didn't get to bed till after 4 in the morning and still had to get up at 6:30 to take the kid to school. It was so worth it!

    4/5 have already pipped, and 3 have begin to crack the shell. The 5th one has been wobbling every now and then though, do yoy think he'll make it?

    If he's wobbling it's good, just a late bloomer I'm thinking. Crossing my fingers you aren't up all night. Me, I need to get to bed but you can bet I will be checking this thread asap! Maybe I'll keep my phone with me tonight so I can see the updates, LOL.
