    I have 6 bantie eggs in the bator that were all supposed to hatch on Thursday. I noticed yesterday that one was pipped, and I saw a different one rocking. This morning when I got up, I had a baby in the bator. Since then, the others haven't pipped at all, and I haven't seen any moving either. Is this normal? Or should I be worried? They aren't even supposed to hatch until Thursday, possibly Friday ( don't remember if I set them in morning or afternoon), but they were all set at the same time. I just hatched 12 out of 13 last week (my first hatch! [​IMG]), but I am just worried that there are no more pips.

    I read you are to wait until day 25 to stop. So don't worry maybe the one that hatched was in a hurry. You have a couple of days. Like I was told, sit on your hands and don't open the bator. LOL

    Keep us posted and don't forget the pictures.

    No they aren't even supposed to hatch until this Thursday or Friday, the 18 or 19. That's what's got me bugged. I just put the other pic up cuz those ones are so sweet, but they look really big in the pic!! They have wing feathers and that's about it!!
