    Hi,
    I know I am probably just being a over worried mama...but,
    I noticed we had a pip this morning at 7-8 a.m.
    Now its 1 a.m. and its still not out.
    The pip is bigger, looks "X" shaped and when I go in and "STARE" [​IMG]
    I can see it everyonce in a while push the shell.
    It has broken a few pieces but they are not "off" yet. (broken outward "X" wise)

    I need to go to bed, or I'm not going to be worth anything tomorrow.
    Maybe out of site out of mind?
    Will it be alright????????

    Hopefully when I wake up it will be out and fluffed.
    Can I leave it in the hatcher with the temp at 100 and humidity 70-71 until I get up?
    Will it hurt it?
    Hopefully if it gets out, its peeping will make the others start?

    I can't hear peeping because we have the forced air, all I hear is the fan hum.....[​IMG]

    Thanks and SORRY!!!!

    I hope your hatch goes well, according to other members hatching can take 24 hours. At this point it is up to the little chick. [​IMG]
    Let us know how it goes.

    Good morning all!
    Got up and WE GOT ONE!
    It finished and now is sitting in the shell still, struggles a little to try to get out and takes a nap [​IMG]

    It is soooo adorable!
    It looks up at us thru the glass, probably feels like "Jack and the beanstock" [​IMG]

    AND we got another pip going!

    Here's to another EGGciting day!
    Thanks all!
