    Be patient...I've had them pip and it took another day for them to hatch. (look at me telling someone to be patient when I just put 17 blue rock eggs from Halo in the hatcher!) I thought if I told someone else to be patient, I could convince myself to be the same! (yeah right!)[​IMG]

    I'm going to call this "Watched Pot Syndrome". We all have it. It can only be treated by the sight of the last chick thriving! And is highly contagious! [​IMG]

    And a watched pot never boils. Proof - I had three ready to hatch yesterday. I checked on them at 10am - no progress. I had to go to the feed store because I have some hens that aren't doing well. Was back by 11:15. And wouldn't ya know it. hatched! Maybe it's all Murphy's falt (Murphy's Law) [​IMG]

    Hang in there![​IMG]
