    My chicks are suppose to hatch tomorrow.last night one pipped a hole but is not out.two more have pipped since last night, but no one is out yet.all three are alive and the eggs are moving and I hear chirping.the humidity is a little over 70.should I be concerned since they are early and that it seems to be taking a while?

    Pokey.. day 21 for mine was yesterday and it has been a super slow process.. the chick that pipped last hatched first.. now just waiting on number 2.. from all I have read and messages.. it can take awhile.. I wouldn't stress out yet.

    Some take 3 days to hatch after they pip an others are out in minutes. Sounds like you are ok.
