I still have another egg in the bator that has not yet pipped, but this little one wants out so bad, it is wearing itself out trying to get out, pecking at the side and it is very lonely. When it sees us through the veiwing window, Pip comes over to greet us immediately. Would it be ok to take Pip out as long as the other egg has not pipped?

If you take Pip out you risk the humidity in the bator suddenly dropping and shrink wrapping the remaining chick inside the egg. It should be okay in the bator for a couple of days. At the end of the day you could take it out early because it's lonely. But if you only have one other egg and it fails to hacth then your chick will be lonely for alot longer than 1 day.
