    I've had so much trouble with my LG incubator. I've had problems with humidity and temperature. When I put my eggs on lockdown the temp wouldn't rise from 95 for a whole day (two thermometers were reading 95). I even lost power for several hours during lockdown! But today (end of day 19) I have a pip! He/she has been pipped for a long time and I'm getting quite anxious, but I can wait. It's also surprising because it was a large egg to pip first and I have both large and bantam eggs. Anyway, how long does this usually take? The chick hasn't been cheeping... is that ok too?

    Actually, I heard a really faint chirp... the egg seems to be rocking constantly in little rocks if that makes since. Is that OK?
