I took a peek, because I was going to put a sponge in the water any how. one pip, 2 in air cell, and 2 starting to bend the air cell, one not in air cell at all, but still okay.
I am totally new to this chicken stuff. I’ve been following this thread the whole time and find it so interesting. Is there any way you can explain what exactly this means? I have zero experience with hatching chicks, but a lot of interest.

A pip is the first hole in an egg that is beginning to hatch. After the first pip, it could take another 12-24 hrs to hatch no help needed.. I currently have 2 pips now. and 3 in air cell (air cell is when the chick in the egg has poked a hole into the air cell, large end of egg, and taken it's first breath in the egg, getting ready to pip.)

The second pip is another brown egg...
