    *pats on head*

    be pacient [​IMG] I seem to notice that even tho a chick has pipped it hasnt' absorbed all of it's blood and yolk yet so it's resting inbetween working the egg and absorbing the blood and yolk this can take some time depending on when they first pip.

    Ones that pip and zip within 5-15 minutes I think were lazy, and just waited until all thier blood and yolk was absorbed before they started zipping [​IMG]

    Give em time and CONGRATS!!!! [​IMG]
