    My little EE hatched! I'm so mad I missed it. He pipped last night and this morning no change. 1 hour later he's chilling in the incubator half-dry! LOL But I'm worried about the rest. There were 3 last night rocking, tapping and peeping and none of them have pipped or done anything. Is that normal?

    Yes, they will usually pip internallly then rest for a while until they have the energy to pip the thick shell. Hope you have some more pips soon [​IMG]

    Absolutely normal when they "quiet" down. Sometimes they will start to pip, you think they will never hatch; then you go do something else(dishes, laundry etc) and they are already out and half dry when you get back. It usually takes eggs from 1-3 days to hatch, some are just quicker than others. Good luck![​IMG]

    Only on BYC would you see the comment, "I have a fuzzy butt!" and not think, "Sounds like a personal problem to me!"

    Sorry, couldn't resist. Congratulations on the chickie!
