    Ok we are on lockdown and at least 4 of the chicks are pipping and 1 is zipping on day 19. I am getting kinda conserned about the zipping egg as she hasnt moved in a while or done anything.. is this just me freaking out? or will this little chickie be ok? im hoping my humidity isnt to low.. I dont think the chick is stuk but im not sure.. do chicks kinda slow down sometimes when zipping because it is more tyring? I am just do nervouse and really want more chooks!

    They often stop and take a break .....hatching is hard work

    Just a reminder....bumping your own post is against the rules and will get you in trouble.

    It can take well over 24 hours from pip to completely hatched.

    They need a break now and then. Sometimes they just can't hatch. If the chicks is too weak to get out it may not make it even if you helped it. most of the time they don't make itv with help. I hope that it does make it but if your humidity is right and you aren't opening the incubator letting out the moisture and heat often it should be fine.
