    Got the same surprise myself last Wednesday night when we were moving the eggs into the hatching trays. Two were already pipped! Need to lower the temp a few tenths I think as they are cooking a little fast. I set the turkey eggs Friday night twenty eight days ago today, twenty one days ago today for the chickens. Here it is Friday morning and there were eight already hatched when I got up this morning.

    They will be fine, I've done that myself. Missed the hatch totaly, I went in to feed the chicks in the brooder and looked over at the incubator and there was little faces looking out. A few had already hatched.

    Good luck! A day's delay shouldn't do too much harm.
