    I had just about given up hope. I went to put water in the incubator and then i saw it a little hole in the egg. I am sooooo excited!!!

    Well I just checked them. they aren't doing anything right now. How long does it take? All the other eggs should start piping to right?

    You had temp issues on this hatch didnt you??? I cant remember all the hatchings going on...but...if the temps were low, they may hatch a day or two late....as far as the pipping....a few of mine took almost 24 hrs to come out. Its SO FRUSTRATEING! Keep the lid closed....keep the humidity up...everything should be fine.
    Good luck!! Keep us posted!

    It usually takes up to 24 hours before they completely emerge from the shell after first sign of pipping. Be patient and keep the incubator lid closed and you should be fine. Any update on progress today?
