    The piped one hasn't done anything else yet. I know it takes awhile. How long does it usually take for them to start zipping?

    ETA: We have two more pips!

    Well, it hatched around 2:00. I thought nothing was happening, so I left them alone for about an hour, and Voila! a chick. [​IMG]
    do they keep cheeping loudly the whole time they're in there?
