Buff Orpington L/F hatching eggs bought on e-bay

21 days ago we entered 6 buff orpington large fowl eggs purchased and delivered from e-bay into our incubator. We stopped turning the eggs on sunday and today the first one has pipped with audible chirping from within. they are being left well alone for the next 24hrs, and hopefully more will start to hatch overnight.

These eggs were in the same incubator as the Marans and silkie eggs, so they have had quite a bit of open incubator time. I suspect our hatch rate may not be great, but 24 hrs ago I thought none were alive.
