    That's great! Now it's really going to be hard to walk away from the bator for more then a few minutes at a time! I know I must look at mine a 100 times a day.

    Tell me about it. Well so far there has been absolutly NO change in 3 hours. No peeping, no rockin, no nothing. Theres a small section of the egg that has been pipped and im just wondering if i should remove it with a tiny set of tweezers or just leave it sittin were it is?

    Theres also no activity/change in the other egg.

    Ok thanks. Well guess who won;t be able to sleep tonight lol. It's already 12:45am as it is and i don't want to go to bed and leave it unattended lol.


    How long should i leave it b4 taking action if there is no change at all?

    I agree. Just pushing that first piece of shell up is hard work and sometimes they'll just rest for hours afterward, then start forward again. Don't worry for about 24 hours.
