    I can take several hours. I know it's really stressful! [​IMG] If you open the bator you run the risk of it drying out from low humidity. Spend some time researching the hatching info on this website and take lots of deep breaths! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Mine stayed like that for 24 hours, then just as I was thinking of helping it, it started to zip. [​IMG]
