    I have 3 remaining. 2 have not pipped and 1 pipped. I have 6 chicks playing soccer with them. The one that is pipped had pipped early this morning and was shoved into a corner with two other shells over his shell. I am wondering if he is going to be ok since his membrane is no longer white but greenish. It had been white earlier. Not sure if it is on the inside or from the other shells. I can still see him moving just slightly so I know he is alive. I am very tempted to open the bator and get the 6 chicks out but I don't want to hurt the pipped egg. Any thoughts or ideas?

    With styrofoam incubator, you can open the clear windows to get them out from there. With cabinet incubator, open the door will give a huge drop in humidity and it will take a while to get it back up.
