    Congrats!!!! No, they should hatch out by themselves. Assisting is not recommended until 18-24 hours after pip. Prematurely interfering can cause the chick to bleed out as it usually takes many hours for the egg's vascular system to shut down. Some eggs pip and zip within a few hours, others take all day. I notice my early pippers usually take closer to 24 hours to progress from pip to zip. My hatches usually start day 19. My bator runs a tad warm. I would say yours ran a tad warm maybe a degree with them hatching a day early. As long as they are hatching healthy that's not a big deal.
