I have on two separate occasions hatched a dented egg--both due to my extreme clumsiness. Both hatched successfully. And both had some things in common: * They hatched neither early nor late, but well in the middle of things; * They both were among the last several to pip but... * They zipped and hatched so quickly after the initial external pip that they ended up hatching long before others that had pipped much earlier. Was it just a fluke? The difference in time from pip to zip to hatch was so extreme that I was awed by it. The first time I assumed it as just an odd-ball, but when the second dented egg did the same thing I got to wondering... Anyone else noticed this phenomenon (anyone else have butter fingers like mine???)? Any thoughts on the reason for it?
