    I am on day 23 for some of my eggs. I had one hatch today and I can hear 2 more peeping and pecking but they are not pipping. How do I know when I need to help them? I don't want them to suufocate.

    Have looked at their shell! One time mine was peeping but i could see where it had pipped! So i turned the egg over and there was its little hole! Maybe it has just pipped underneath!

    As long as they are peeping and pecking I would leave them alone. They are not going to suffocate.
