    So day 21 I only had 1 pip out of 17 eggs so far. She's hactched this morning on day 22 but still can't see any others that have pipped. First hatcher is a bantam. I have a mix of bantam & large fowl in my incubator. Is this normal or is there something I should be doing? Just a little worried :). I did candle all of them & discarded the ones that weren't viable before lockdown.

    Any suggestions or words of wisdom will help! Thanks!
