    I'm on my 20th day of incubation and I have 8 eggs and 5 have pipped and the others are moving and chirping. My first pip was at 930 this morning now he's very slowly chipping away. How much longer to I have to wait?!?

    congrats to you first of all!!![​IMG]

    It can take awhile.....it is very hard work for those little guys to get out!!! AND sometimes they are late!

    Just sit on those hands and DON'T OPEN THE INCUBATOR! [​IMG] Gets lots of coffee and sit back and enjoy! [​IMG]

    Oh, and keep us posted!

    I find that if I am hanging about waiting for a special egg to hatch and it is pipping, it seems forever to pop out, so I just go out shopping and when I get back, low and behold it has hatched. Yeeppeeee !!!! Sandy
