    I was going to candle an egg to make sure they were still alive.... and I very quickly grabbed one at random as none had pipped yet. Low and behold, as I picked it up, I noticed it had pipped in the lower 3rd of the egg.... so I quickly placed it back in the carton, only on it's side more so that it wouldn't get stuck..... and I saw something move across the hole! [​IMG] I'm soooo excited! [​IMG]

    But now I'm worried sick!!!! What if more pip low???? I don't want my humidity to drop and endanger the hatch. Do you think I got lucky in pulling the low pipper??? Should I be concered about the rest???????

    Good luck! [​IMG] Yes, they should be just fine. I've had some pip low for no apparent reason and get out of the egg just fine on their own. Hope your hatch goes well. [​IMG]

[​IMG] No wonder it is so addicting to hatch eggs [​IMG] [​IMG] It's gonna be hard to only hatch what I need [​IMG] So exciting! I'm not gonna get ANY sleep tonight! [​IMG]
