    I have my first pip of two eggs, how long will it take for the zipping to start, I have been watching all day and no zipping? I hear peeps. Is it okay to open the bator is all the eggs have pipped?

    Could be up to 24 hours.... Leave the bator alone... Sit on your hands...

    Can you see the chick moving inside the shell? What is your humidity at? Have both of them been pipped for over 24 hours?
