    I know it sounds crazy, but chirp to them to encourage them. Mine was getting really fired up last night when I'd chirp back to him/her. I felt like I was at a pep rally: "Goooooo, egg! You can do it! Woohoo!"

    I'm sure my neighbors think I'm crazy. [​IMG]

    PS: The *moving* you saw last night may have been he or she getting into position to break into the air sac??
