    I've hatched only a few batches, but be patient. Sometimes it's a long period of time from the time they pip until they hatch. I had one guinea keet hatch last weekend that took around 36 hours from the time it pipped until he was hatched. [​IMG] Don't open the incubator. Make sure the humidity is right.

    Read the "Incubating and Hatching" sticky. There's a lot of great information about hatching. [​IMG]
