Leave the incubator closed...it can take 24 hours for the chick to pip and opening could cause it to quit but the other chick might not pip...you lose your bator temps and humidity by opening til the hatch is finished...

Don't touch the incubator. I did too much touching with my first hatch and lost all of them and they did not get enough humidity while pipping. My chick from last batch took 20 hours from first noted pipping and she is thriving.
