Well, It finally hatched, I had to assist since I was afraid that it would dry out after pipping for almost three days. I know to leave them alone, and chirped my behind off trying to get it to hatch. I would chirp, and the peep would get excited and roll around, but never getting much progress. It all started when a friend gave me some eggs to hatch. I candled them at 7 days, and noticed one egg was completly dark, then I seen movement. I realized I have actually two eggs that have been brooded. So now I have to guess how far along the eggs are, so when I figured it was time, I took from the turner, and laid it into the other bator which has eggs also that I turn everyday. Well after about 5 days, I noticed it had pipped, oh heck, I got eggs to turn and a chick ready to hatch. I managed to turn the eggs with a shish kabob stick by just opening the bator enough to do so. After almost three days of chirping, and really no progress, I decided to help out just a little. Then it really went to work, and I thought it may just bust on out. After about 4 hrs, I decided that it may be stuck, and figured it may not get out, so I cracked the top. Well the little guy seemed to get all excited, and finally pushed on out. It seems to be doing fine, but wore out after three days tryng to hatch. Now for the next one, Which I am guessing to move from the turner the next day or two. Then its all down hill from there, I know when the rest of the eggs will hatch, just didn't expect to get eggs that had already started. Wish me luck, I hope the little chic survives. Sure the chic is some type of bantam since it was a smaller egg, and she had bantams.
