    Ok so I have six buff brahma eggs in bator that were suppose to hatch Monday. I went to put them in lock down today and got a surprise. Some appear to have already internally pipped. Is this a problem or will things be fine?

    As long as they're going on lockdown today, they should be fine. I've had to put eggs on lockdown a couple of days early after finding external pips & they did great. Good luck with your hatch [​IMG]

    Okay thank you. I'm just glad to find out they are alive. Since my hen lays dark brown eggs I was never real sure if they were alive.
