    I said urgent because I don't know if time is important.

    I have several eggs peeping on them underneath side....this has not happened to me before...sometimes it was on the low to middle side, but never the bottom. Is this OK? If not, what do I need to do? The other eggs are peeping "normally". 3 so far are on the bottom. Do they Need Help?

    Thank you.

    I had one do that and he hatched fine. Just let them do what they need to do. [​IMG]

    I had a chick hatch a few days ago like that, and I dunno if the way he pipped had anything to do with it, but he was having trouble, the membrane dried out and he hatched very tiny and weak and died yesterday.... I'd turn it. Just slightly.

    Do you mean they are laying on their side and it pipped on the side closest to the wire? If so I don't think there is any problem with that. [​IMG]
