    Hi all,

    My button eggs were due last night. In 1 hour they will be 24 hrs past due. When I candle the air sack I can see the lil beaks has poked through and got there first breath of air. I have noticed that last night. But, till now they are still not pipping? Shall I be worried!?...

    Increase humidity, it weakens the outer shell and makes it easier to break. Maybe try raising temp to 101/101.5.

    Happy and excited to announce that all have hatched and are drying in the bator right now. One was faced the opposite direction and needed assistance due to not being able to zipp in that position.

    Haha, no. I'm burrowing from someone who makes rounds to the Metro (do you have those in USA?, its a food store), in front of my house. I think he's a trucker, so anyway he said he'll let me borrow when he makes another round, 'cause he has two. It's the round metal container types, and he has another Sportsman Cabinet Incubator at home. I feel bad for selling him eggs, so i'm going to just give em some for free now when he comes to pick it up, 'cause i just sold him 3 and a half doz for $20 last week.

    I think he's gonna let me borrow this:

    And this would be his:

    Oh cool! I'm not sure how those work. But I'm sure if you post in the hatching or incubating thread they will be helpful. Those don't get hot to the touch?

    Where you from?
