    I had one successfully hatch it is alive and starting to become fluffy however one opened up at least 25% of its shell and then stopped making any movement or sounds for the past 4 hours. Is this something to worry about? also it appeared as if the chicken was upside down its in a little giant egg turner (off and level)

    Hopefully things have progressed by now :) I like to wait and see how they do on thier own for the first 12 hrs then I just check on how they are doing and usually wait until 24 hours then help them out :)
