    My first 2 eggs pipped yesterday! I could see ones beak, and it struggling. I waited for nature to do its thing. This morning there was no more movement and I was sure it was dead, so I decided to open it up for examination. It seems like it developed it's insides on the outside. I feel better Knowing it would'nt have survived even if had helped it out. This is my first hatch, and I'm wondering if I did anything wrong. I have one more zipped, and waiting patiently for 7 more to pip.

    I don't believe you did anything wrong. Sometimes things happen. Just be patient and don't be in a rush to help out. They know what they are suppose to do.
