    Let them be!!!! Don't open the bator once they have pipped, because it could SERIOUSLY dry them out. Ask me - I know [​IMG]

    ok- Im leaving them alone- and all is going well so far- 13 out [​IMG] they are all managing to get out of the carton just fine and hang out on the towel spread out underneath- i did very quickly slide a sheet of foam board inside to block off the lightbulb/thermostat area from the babies tho- but this didnt require opening the bator
