    Just candled eggs that are due to go in hatcher tomorrow. Saw one that has pipped internally and is peeping inside the egg. Should I leave it alone until tomorrow or put them all in hatcher tonight?

    Sounds like you'll have babies before you know it. I have eggs in the hatcher too, but they aren't due until Wed. Fingers crossed for both of us. [​IMG]

    Wow!! Put mine in the hatcher yesterday. I'm hoping to maybe see a pip when I get home from work in am. My last group hatched a day early, so I can't wait!!!

    We just finished 6 hatched out of 9 eggs and found that if we left the room and left it dark, they did better than with intervention. It is amazing what those guys can do on their own!
