    It's 8:30 A.M. and at least four of the eggs for my blue Orpington chicks just now began pipping. I feel like I did when waiting in the fathers' wating room for Rex and Kate. I might have a few chicks by noon. I can't remove them from the incubator though until 36 hours after the first one hatches (late hatchers), don't want to change the environment's heat/humidity. Every now and then I hear little peeps!

    Pictures later; you can look, but don't touch.

    Well if there's a problem with hatching lets say it piped but then it stopped then you might want to help the chick out of the egg if it's having a hard time.
