    I have 6 eggs with a bit of the shell picked off but it doesent go all the way thru,day 21 starts in 4 hours,temp is good and i think the humidity is ok about 60-65 %,how long does this take from pip to zip....I CANT STAND THIS,I have a son but wasnt there for his birth but i assume its a lot like that....

    It can be 24 hours or 15 minutes, LOL. I've dealt with both and I'd rather have the 15 minutes!

    Awesome! It's quite the thrill, isn't it? Mine is still just at the pipped stage with the other one doing nothing yet, but tomorrow is Day 21 for my two little loners.
     
  7. Hi! Yaaay! A chick out!
    I hope you'll be seeing lots more soon
    (From pip to hatch can seen like an eternity)!

    Good luck with the rest!
