    Well, I hate to be the one to tell you. But they can take 8-12 hours sometimes after they pip.
    Make some popcorn. My DH swears the sound of that popping sets them popping. I think its my calling like a roo to them. Stirs them up and gets them moving around. [​IMG]

    Haha, I hatched out 11. [​IMG]
    The power went out for two hours two days before hatch day and they all hatched 2-3 days late. I was quiet glad they hatched!! 11/15 - pretty good I'd say. Two eggs are still in the incubator, but I think they died. They have until tomorrow to hatch, then they're getting thrown out. Good luck on your hatch! [​IMG]
