And the chick on the right looks like it wants to hatch really soon!

It's at my kids' school, and sadly, I don't have access to the classroom again til 7:30 or so tomorrow morning. :( But yeah, if I was there, I would be sneaking in and turning it a little. I'm so bad at lockdown.

I admit to being pretty absent minded, and that is the one egg that I can't quite remember. I think he/she is either a wellsummer or a barnevelder, and probably a mix. Either breed is fine with me, which is probably why I can't remember for sure.

How long has that egg been pipped do you know . Seems like she is trying to zipp length wise instead of around, if she has been pipped for more then 24 hours and dosnt progress soon she may need help.

That one has been pipped less than 24 hours. It pipped around 19 or so hours ago. I also felt like it may have pipped earlier than it was supposed to and will need longer. Can't say WHY I think that, just that I do.

When I went to set up the camera around 4pm yesterday, it wasn't moving at all. If I tapped on the incubator, the other two would move around, but this one didn't. I had pretty much decided it had died, and have had a bad feeling about it.

When I went in this morning to get the two hatched chicks out, I was genuinely surprised to see this chick was still alive and moving around in there.

For whatever reason, my chicks generally like to torture me and take at least 24 hours from pip to hatch.

I am not afraid of intervening, and am probably a little quick to do so, but this particular one, I don't think I will even consider helping until tomorrow morning.
