    My eggs have piped. My 2 year old son opened the incubator. I caught him and made him shut it fast. One egg piped while the other just hatched at 12: 30 this afternoon. Could him opening it hurt the piped egg?

    Maybe, but if it wasn't for too long everything is probably fine.

    The chick hatched at 6:30 last night. I so happy I as thinking that it would not. So as of now I have 3 that hatched and 3 still to come. Not sure if they were layed on different days.

    It doesn't matter if they were laid different days. If they weren't being kept warm they won't develop, so they should all hatch around the same time. Congrats on the new chick! [​IMG]
