    Ok i know he is in the air sack already. They werent due to hatch until this weekend. My ? is I heard him yesterday and I am wondering how long it takes for them to put a hole in the shell? It has been 24 hours already. I don't want him to die in the egg.

    They can take 3 days from external pip to hatch, plus they can be pipped internally for 1-2 days before pipping the shell. So be patient, sit on your hands, and it will happen [​IMG]
