    Help! This is my first time hatching eggs. On friday, day 20, 2 of my 12 eggs hatched. I stopped turning the eggs on day 18.. but when these guys hatched on the 20th day, they pushed some of the eggs around. So far nothing else has hatched. It's day 22. I just put water in a few minutes ago to keep the humidity up. I know they are fertile, they would stink if they weren't, right? Anyways, has this happened to anyone else? Is there still hope?

    There is still hope. Some eggs just take a little longer than others to hatch. I would wait a another day or two and if you don't have any pips candle them. (actually if it were me I would have candled them a million times already but I have issues!)
