    I don't think it is going to go well.
    The good news is that I have one baby who hatched this morning. He's a cutie!
    The bad news is that I have a 'bator full and there is only one other who has pipped. The one that has pipped, pipped last night and hasn't done anything else.
    And now, the bator stinks! It smells. Bad. What went wrong?



    The one who pipped last night finally hatched. He has a very funny looking head. Almost like a big bubble on top of his head.

    There is no activity from any of the other eggs. I'm bummed.

    Did you candel the eggs and if so were all fertile? Have you got any cracked eggs in the bator?

    No, didn't candle.

    There aren't any cracked eggs except for the one that hatched and the one that pipped.

    I had one that didn't make it out that fits the description of your "bubble head." Post a pic, maybe someone else will know.
