    This egg started pipping around noon yesterday (picture 1) and is now looking like this (picture 2). Should we be worried? It's been over 12 hours.

    If the humidity has stayed at the right level, I'd give it more time, but watch for progress. Once zipping starts, things will progress faster. Watch for the next hole/break to appear as that is a sign zipping has begun. Good Luck.

    Thank you. It is finally out but just lays there. He kicks his legs a good bit but can't really get up yet. Been out for about an hour or so. Not sure what to do. [​IMG]
