    Has anyone seen this before? Look closely at the bottom right of the picture. That is a foot! It is very active, it was the first to pip but has still not hatched and 2 others have. I of course am not going to mess with it, just find it interesting.

    Not sure what was going on but it was stuck to the shell. Helped it out some and then put it back in with a warm damp papertowel
