    :cool:My chick is pipping out of the narrow end while the others are pipping out of the wider end. Do I have to do something? Or just watch it?

    I have 5 pips and hearing peeping so far.

    I agree..do not open the incubator or it will ruin the rest of your hatch.

    I am just forcing myself NOT to look at the bator.......... I have 3 rows of eggs. All the eggs on the first row are pipping and that is it, drives me nuts to watch!!!

    My incubators are in the basement, so that makes it a little easier not to look every 2 minutes! I do get more exercise tho during hatch days with going up and down the stairs!!

    Thanks! But man they are moving SOOOOOO darn slow. I see one more pipped in the last two hours and THATS it. No progress out of the shells, Nada. Man this can drive a person bonkers! [​IMG]

    I am glad my daughter is in school or she'd be driving me nuts asking "When are they going to hatch?" or "Have they hatched yet." lol

    Hatch! Hatch! Hatch!6[​IMG]
