    Is it that normal? I can here the little one peeping in there but no progress besides initial poke through to get out.

    Also, I have two other eggs that I candled and can't really tell what's going on but they passed the Float Test. Only the tip of the wide end above water. Not sinking. What do you all think? Let them continue to set?

    Yeah leave them it can take 36+ hrs so be patient and just because one has pipped doesnt mean the other will at the same time, may take another 3/4 days [​IMG]

    I had three that pipped for me last week, but never made it any further. I ended up waiting too long and lost 2 out of the 3. The third one I hatched myself (first time ever). It was shrink wrapped due to a screw-up of mine [​IMG] The good news is that it's still thriving today and is full of all kinds of spunk!

    Best of luck!!

    Woke up to find the little one made his way out and is happily snuggled Mama. I two other eggs with no action still and she hasn't given up on them. No idea how long I should let her continue to sit on them. Today is day 23.
