    I have a Girl Scout meeting in 1 1/2 hrs. The meeting is 3 hours long, it should be fine to leave right? I'm just so anxious and don't want do do anything that could harm them!

    It's hard to tell from just the top view, but if that mark wasn't there before then it is a pip :) No worries they need to stay in the incubator till they dry off and it can take HOURS to hatch alone so 3 hours should be just fine! Good luck! My little fuzzies should be her on the 1st and I'm already waiting with baited breath! hahahaha

    Your fine to leave them :D if you might try to get a better lit shot I can help u determine if it's a pip but these are too dark. I keep a flashlight handy during hatch days so I can constantly peek :lau then lemme give u heads up, shining the light Dirctly at the pip gives it a glare, u gotta kinda work w it. Regardless they'll be just fine, this process Usually takes hours. What day are u on?

    Looks like a bit of dirt but obviously if the eggs were clean at the start it's not dirt
