    So it was 21 days yesterday and my one egg piped at around 10:00pm last night. It's now 7:35am and it hasn't zipped yet. Is that normal? I did take the lid off the incubator for a little bit to turn my newer eggs and the temperature was a little low when I woke up. I know it can take up to 48 hrs to hatch but I'm still worried. How long after the pip should they zip?

    Hey... just saw your post, did the baby chicks make it? I'm on my second batch this summer and so far we have 4 babies as of this evening. I'm hoping for a few more! Mama bird is doing a good job staying on her eggs.
