    Give them time. It took a while for some of my eggs to get past their first pip. Whatever you do, DO NOT help it unless it hasn't gotten out of the egg in 36-48 hours. It is most likely resting and absorbing the yolk.

    Yes that is perfectly normal, now the chickie will most likely rest for quite a while then it will start zipping! My chicks always hatch when it's dark, so maybe tomrrow morning you will wake to a new baby, that is if you will ever be able to sleep tonight, lol.

    It's called a Pip!!! Patience and sit on your hands, they can take 24 hours or longer from a pip to zipping out.

    Question, you still have them in the turner?
