    My chicken just pipped! and I heard them pip. Now I know that they can still die without being born. When do they hatch once they pip? and i kinda touched the termostat or the turning thing on my hova-bator cuz the temperature went up to 101.5 i think. so when do they hatch? within 30min after they pip?

    Don't touch a thing and sit on your hands. It can take form 6-48 hours from pip to hatch.

    Yep, listen to silkie chicken. Better yet....handcuff your hands and give someone else the key at least for 48 hours. [​IMG]
