    i just noticed that one of the chicks has pipped at the right end of the egg, the egg is laying flat, and the only way i know that he's pipped is cuz i see a piece of shell on the floor of the bator. he's not facing up.....is this a problem? should i open the bator and mist the eggs and turn him facing up? or should i leave him alone?

    Sit on your hands and leave the bator alone!!!!!!! LOL... I had several in April that pipped on the bottom of the egg and I either found out when I saw a piece of shell on the floor of the bator or a few of them I didn't even know until they began to zip.. The little one will be fine as long as you do NOT open that bator!!! Happy Hatching!!!
