    I have a lone egg that has been peeping for over 24 hours with no pip yet. IS it going to be ok? How long can they breath in there with out a pip?

    It will be fine. It is not unusual to hear peeping a day or so before they pip and it could then be another 24 hours before they hatch. What day are they on?

    Let them keep going without opening the bator yet. It is possible temps were a bit low or this strain is a bit slower. They will come out, just gotta do that hard thing of waiting! Good luck!

    OK...I am OK...I will sit on my hands. My daughter said to me, "Mommie, you said you weren't going to help them out any more. You said that you would let nature take it course. You're not going to help are you?" [​IMG] I just want to help the little fella [​IMG]
