    I'm so very excited but now it's stopped and nothing is going on...it's been the same for an hour [​IMG] I hope that is normal!!

    Here is a picture!


    From the picture it looks as if it's in the middle of the egg but really in real life it's farther up to the top. Either way I'm excited but worried now that it's been an HOUR and nothing is going on! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Wonderful news! It can take 24 hours from pip to hatch. Don't open the bator! It is very normal for them to pip and nothing to happen for hours. Soon you'll go check the bator and a chick will be looking up at you!

    I have no idea why it works out like that. My last hatch every chick hatched between my frequent chicks. Sneaky little buggers [​IMG]

    Yay!! It's hard when the hatch while you are sleeping cause it's hard for you to get some sleep knowing that they are going to do when you're not watching. Best of luck! [​IMG]
