    I have an egg that is peeping but has not piped yet. its been 27 hours. Should I continue to wait?
    I have to go to work but when I get back and it hasn't piped should I help?

    I don't know what day I am on. the hen quite 2 days after I thought we were at 21 days. It started peeping a week later. So I am quessing that I forgot what day I actually had her start sit. And she was if at the start so I had taken the eggs out of the refergerator. (yeah I know not the best.) and set them on the counter for a whole day to warm up to room temp then I went to put them under her and she said maybe not and had lost interest. 5 days later she was sitting again like she was broody and I waited 2 days to be sure and put them under her. I was amazed that all of them made it to now. they were all alive 2 days ago.
