    the others are pipping also it sounds like. your bator may have been running a little more than 100*.

    the little one can be in there for up to 2, 3 days.

    you may want to adjust the humidity if you can without disrupting too much. it needs to be high enough for the chicks to stay moist while hatching out.

    Do not open the bator!!! Humidity needs to stay up. The little guy will be fine in there for up to a day or 2. Good Luck on the rest of the hatch!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hoping for the best also. It will be fine in there and will help cheer on the others to pip and zip.
