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"

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.....


Thanks and SORRY!!!!
Angela

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.

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


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


AND we got another pip going!

Here's to another EGGciting day!
Thanks all!
