    Day 20. Multiple eggs have pipped. One egg hatched but, the chick has turned the other eggs upside down. What should I do?

    This is completely normal, and nothing at all to worry about. The moving around of the eggs I call bowling. I hate watching it as well, because I like to see the pip, but if you were to turn it over, it would be right back where you started from in minutes.

    What About The Eggs That Havent Pipped Yet? Will They Still Know Where To Pip? It Wont Stop The Onrs That Have Pipped Already?

    I Had To Lift The Lid Abit To Lower The Humidity To 66 From 71. Is That Right? After It Hatched The Humidity Began To rise

    It's supposed to. Don't worry about the humidity. As long as it's over 60, it should be just fine.

    Make sure the vents are open.
