Hello everyone on BYC! I started incubating for the first time about 3 weeks ago, 9 shipped eggs. 5 made it to lockdown, although with quite severe saddle air cells. They reached quite low down on the sides of the egg and after reading a lot about the risks I thought that they for sure must become malpositioned because of it and I - as a complete novice - would be terrified throughout the entire hatching. But I placed them with largest dip in air cell up, and hoped for the best. Yesterday (day 19), three of them had externally pipped right on the line of marked air cell. The joy and relief I felt!! One of them was very eager to get out and when I went to look how everything was going at 1:00 am (no.. No I could not fall asleep ) he had started to zip! So i stayed up to watch this amazing event and when he was out and trying to find balance to get to his feet he pushed around the rest of the eggs. I thought "oohhh noo" but did nothing as I'd read that they will be fine. Now about 10 hours later, I'm wondering about the bad air cells, if maybe I should've corrected their position so they have big side of air cell up again? But the chick is still in there with them and would probably just roll them over again. What do you think? Will they be ok? And the lonely little earlybird has still not fluffed out completely. He has one fluffy spot on the back, his wings, butt and chest are fairly fluffy but the feathers on his head and the rest of his back has just dried up and become hard. Will I have to do something about that? And he is feeling quite lonely and is at times even pecking at the pips of the other eggs!! Should I share with him what I've learned about the importance of not rushing the hatching process?
