    So today is day 20 and one of my lil ones managed to hatch early;

    and this is him 2-3 hours later, walking around a bit and resting as he goes;

    Now I do have a concern as that 3 days ago(day 17) all the eggs were wiggling and such, but then late yesterday they sort of stopped wiggling. I can hear or pin point two extra pips as of an hour ago that werent coming from the eggs. This is my first time doing incubation(usually got chickens to do that for me lol) but I am a bit worried. So the other 3 eggs that aren't wiggling/pip got me concerned. Like I am internally freaking out. I know it is only day 20 but the two that have internally pipped have yet to make a dent to the egg shell :( . I know I am being a bit dramatic because this is my first time attempting this but I hope y'all understand. Anyways I would like to get any input from you folks, cheers!

    Update; the egg that is right beside the chick has an external pip!!! YES!!! Hopefully the other eggs come thru without issues as well. Still a bit worried as it is currently day 20 or actually it would be day 19 as the day you set to incubate the eggs would considered day "0"? Hmm..

    Update #2: OMG! The second one managed to hatch out! and there is an external pip on the egg right below it!! So if counting incubation day as "day 0" then that means in exactly 11 hours, it will be day 20. Hopefully the others 4 questionable eggs are still good to go!
