Egg Pip Location

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This is my first hatch and it's day 21 for 5 eggs that I am incubating. One of them pipped this afternoon. Does the location look right?

It looks like to me it is high up in the round end (air cell end) of the egg, which is where you want it to be. At day 18 before you lockdown, if you candle and mark the air cells it will give you an idea of where to expect the pips. (The lowest point of the air cell.)
