    Is this ok? At least I have a divider, so it can't get to some of the eggs, but 2 others that had pipped, it is rolling those around while it's trying out it's legs...Will the others be ok?

    It's nerve wreaking. I know. Mine were doing the same thing. The settled down eventually. It was my first hatch and I got around 70% of those locked down.
    This time I put them in a egg carton. It is much less chaotic this time. And cleaner.

    Hatched chicks roll around the pipped and unpipped eggs all the time. They will be fine.
