    (Check the humidity and temperature.) After a chick pips it needs rest, and will rest about 24hrs or above. My chick hatched day 26. I recommend waiting till day 28, then take out the eggs.

    Do you have any older hens? Or youtube? I tried using hen sounds to help encourage chicks ( I don't know if it really worked or not..) but it's worth a try!
