Hello all, I
m new to the site and first time using an incubator. Ive had a few eggs not work so far. however, I have an egg at 21days today that started to chirp 17hrs ago. Theres movement, and chirping, but no external pip as yet. I have not candled it. I have had temp problems for a bit. Should I help the chick once it passes 24hours if its still chirping. There is a very informative link on another backyard poultry site that has step by step points on what to do and not to do. What do you all think? :clnava

I would not do anything unless the chick had pipped the shell. How have things gone since you posted?
