    I have four chicks out and two pipped eggs on day 21. I'm using the egg carton method and the problem is, one of the eggs started zipping on the side of the egg and not the top. It's running the zip right into the carton's side. Hasn't moved past the side of the carton. Should I sit on my hands and wait, or should I take it out of the carton and throw paper towels in bator to bring humidity back up?
