This is my first time hatching eggs! Yesterday 1 out of six eggs hatched 4 days early! It's just fine. Today another one piped and made a hole big enough to fit its beak in out of the shell. It's been in there for 2 or 3 hours! Is it okay? Yes it is moving around..Thanks.

After pipping, the chick can take 3 - 8 hours to hatch.

From pip to hatch can take 2-36 hours. I have watched one with a small pip just sit there for hours and hours until finally it suddenly goes to work and hatched in 15 minutes.

The humidity is at 70 and I can't really get it more than that. But I think the humidity is fine because (I did this with first chick too) I have a piece of warm damp paper towel near the hole and it's keeping it pretty moist.
