    My first chick is about a third of the way through unzipping its egg on day 20. I put the eggs in little beds so the kids couldn't make them roll--wondering, can the chick unzip the backside of the egg if he can't get it to roll off the floor? Sounds silly but I was just imagining it's beak meeting a lot of resistance on the bottom.

    Glad I saw this! Was going to set mine in toilet paper rings this time and was wondering the same thing? Thanks.
