hatching chicken eggs

My class is trying to hatch chicken eggs...

Here is our incubator:


Here are the cute chicken eggs (we got a dozen):


I put the document camera over the incubator, so we could see it on the projector screen (all day). My students LOVED watching the progress. A few chickens started pecking little holes! 

I even let them stay in for last recess just to watch:


When I left school today, none of them had hatched.

When I went into check on them around 7:30pm... a chick hatched!!
I couldn't believe it!!

Look how cute this little guy is:


I can't wait to show my students tomorrow and I hope no more hatch during the night...
I want them to hatch while the students are there... cross your fingers!

Have you hatched chicken eggs before?
Any advice?
