No worries ! I ended up with 5 out of 17 eggs my first go round...only 3 of them made cheeping noises before they finally broke out ! Took mine about 12 hours to zip and hatch completely after pipping. Good luck ! Have fun ! TRY NOT TO BE SO NERVOUS! LMBO, I was running around the house a ball of nerves my first hatch....Constantly watching "bater TV" LOL Hubby was about ready to tie me down to a chair !
