After reading "Possibly Hatching Problems" and others eggs coming to hatch, I will be gone next weekend during the possible piping process, and I have my nephew watching our boys Friday night and return Saturday night. If the duckling starts piping what does it look like so I know to tell them what to look for and for any problems? Will the piping look like a small dent like what I was talking about yesterday when the egg got dented during transportation when our power went out? I'm trying to get directions in order for that time if it will start while I"m gone. Lock down for my egg 10 is Thursday October 7th, and I leave Friday afternoon, and will be home about 6ish on Saturday, which will put it at day 27/28 when things should start happening. Doubtful, but you never know. I think I can assume I'm safe and it won't pip until the 28th day when I'll be able to be home to watch things progress. But I'd rather be safe then sorry, if not directions for my nephew, but for me because Lord knows I will be a basketcase of nerves and excitement. So Katherine and others of expertise, be prepared next weekend!
