    I know, I know, my temps were a tad high and that is why this happened. Anywho, the chick pipped this morning and hasnt made any progress and its been at least 15 hours that I know of. It cracked the shell, but didnt pip through the membrane. I wasnt home all day, in and out, but when I did check on it the last few times it wasnt moving or anything. So I figured that since it hadnt pipped the external membrane that maybe it suffocated, but sure enough as soon as I was ready to do something about it, it peeped! WHEEEWW!!!!!!!

    Update:
    6 so far hatched total
    1 cuckoo maran
    1 black copper maran
    4 silver penciled wyandottes
    still more pips and wigglers

    Hang in there hon they can just sit there for twenty four hours and absorb. With it pipping early it knew it wasnt ready yet. You know the old saying Leave the bator shut. Good luck let us know when it gets here/
