    I had peeps this morning and just had one hatch. Be patient. Yours are normal. It varies quite a bit, but there is nothing to worry about. I'm guessing your sitting there watching. Move away from the incubator and find something to do that you used to do before you started hatching eggs....[​IMG] Really though, they will pip, zip and hatch when they are ready.

    OMG I got a pip! I hear some peeping too! How long does it take them to come out? I am nervous! What if the others haven't come out? When do I take the hatched ones out of the bator?
