    I assisted a little. Chipped away some of the shell. I also broke the outer membrane at the air sac just a bit. I'm noticing more movement from the chick and louder peeping. If she doesn't progress I'll help more.

    We have a chick! And another egg is zipping right now, it's a silkie though. And another Serama is pipping! This is such a relief since the power outage!

    Well, as long as you know how much it is off by you can use it. I had one I had to put a sticker on that said +4 so I could remember. Oddly enough, months later it now matches my other one that was correct.

    @mommaduck2014 I tend to keep mine under it at least 8-9 weeks. I'm not sure if Seramas are different, but with the chilly temps I would think longer
