    Sometimes it takes a while before the zip. It has to absorb the yolk.

    Have patience. It takes awhile to zip all around the egg, while confined in such a small area. Hatching is hard work for the tiny chicks and they rest a lot in between any effort.

    Sending great hatching vibes your way [​IMG][​IMG]
