    It made a little crack (Hole) in the egg about 3 1/2 hrs ago and since nothing! This is not good!

    Give it time. It can take up to 24hrs for an egg to hatch, and it's got to be an exhausting process.

    The first one is the same, but another one has a crack on the end of the shell. This is driving me crazy!
