    Thanks for the inspiration! I tend to feel more frustrated because I end up surfing the web or wasting time when I can't sleep. I read sometimes, but now I'll be sure to have my sketch book and pencils easily accessible. If I had a sound-proof sewing room I would sew to relax.

    Yeah, I am working on my third volume for adult coloring books and thought might as well draw since I can't sleep. I don't sew much except for buttons

    Good morning y'all.

    I have 7 eggs that are pipped in my incubator today! But 2 of them have been like that for about 15 hours. Should I do anything?

    Congrats! She looks like one happy momma hen. [​IMG]
    Awesome hatch rate! [​IMG]

    Chickens can certainly be that way. [​IMG] They think the world revolves around them.

    Are the chicks inside still peeping and talking? If they sound lively, they are likely fine. Its when they begin to quiet down that means they are weakening.
    If your worried, just pick a bit of the shell away so that the chick is getting more oxygen and so you can see what is happening. If this doesn't help them then you may have to assist the hatch. Be patient, some chicks take a while to hatch compared to others and helping too early can make them bleed (eggs tend to bleed when helped, but the more they bleed the less likely they are to survive the first day).

    I hope this helps and I hope they all hatch healthy! [​IMG]
