With shipped eggs, I trace the air cell AFTER it has drawn down, usually on day 19. This way you have a visual of the safe spots for it to pip. Air cells can get crazy shapes when they drawn down on shipped eggs. Otherwise, you just have to look for pips at the pointy end. Sometimes they are hard to see because the chick will pip pointy end and underneath on the side facing the floor.
So.......it was an Ayam cemani baby that hatched first!!!!!! There is a fibro zipping as I had to leave the house again.... and there were 2 more pips. 1 AC egg and 1 Fibro. Leaving just one AC left....I hope it hatches. And I forgot pictures in my short stay at the house.....I topped off their water and had to leave....I hope they will be okay until tomorrow! Bad timing to hatch babies and make plans. ....I need to do a better job planning next year.
Lots of pips, zips and chicks!
