    I'm Kristen from NC and am in the middle of my first hatching! I have two chicks in the "brooder" and two eggs still in the incubater. One has a side pip and I could use some advice.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] What do you mean, side pip? Is the chick malpositioned? How long has it been since it pipped?

    Sometime between 7 am and 2pm while I was at work. Yes, malpositioned...almost at the center of the egg.

    I feel like a complete idiot.....it was a piece of paper towel that had gotten wet and stuck to the side. Not a pip at all

    Well I would check out the link Sumi gave you - it always good to know as much about hatching as possible.
