If I don't see any more pipping from the other eggs WITHIN 48 hours, I slice a careful window in the egg just in case they have problems doing it themselves. As long as you very carefully slice a good long cut on the very top surface of the egg, it will not hurt the neonate whatsoever. I use a tiny pair of cuticle/mustache scissors to do this and simply aim the point of them upwards a bit so it rides the very inside surface of the egg ONLY.

Best of luck!,.....and show some pics of the little guys if you can..
