Okay so here goes. I had six lavender cochin eggs in the bator. Friday I candled all of them and there was nothing in any except one. Well I couldn't see anything definite so I kept it in the bator and threw the rest out. Well today, day 21, I went in to check on the egg and was getting ready to throw it out when I hear peeping inside. Scared the bejeepers out of me so I put it back in the bator. The temp has been consistent and I have had a small cup of water in there for humidity. No I don't have a hyrgometer just the thermometer. So anyway I hear the peeping but no pipping is going on. Should I wait and see what happens or should I start a hole for the chick to begin his pipping? If I should wait, how long before I should intervene? I don't want to lost this one as it is the only cochin out of 24+ cochin eggs that have developed. I would appreciate any suggestions or advice you can give on what to do, if anything.
