    I am sure your eggs will be fine! I know it is a little scary when you are new to incubating! ANYONE can get a little excited! Just try not to open the bator any more! Good Luck! [​IMG]

    I wonder what's going on with all this early hatching? Minea were early too, and mine are NEVER early!! I just saw that you are not new to incubating! Calm down! LOL

    They should be fine. Up the humidity and keep an eye on them but they should hatch just fine.

    Good luck and congrats on the about to be babies!

    Quote:Ok Are you sure it was a peep and not more of a toot that came from behind you? Was there a smell after the peep? Just playing with you. That does seem a bit unusual. You might have one that is planning to hatch a day or two early.
