pipping without rupturing into aircell

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

can someone tell me why eggs are pipping the outer shell without pipping internally?Normally they would break their beak into the aircell and then they start pipping the outer shell.But now in this new incubator chicks are managing to start pipping the outer shell without breaking into the aircell.

Malpositioned?

it does not seem to be that they are malpositioned.when candling I can see that there are pip marks on the shell where the air cell is aswell as where there are still veins(which is not normal)however when I made a hole in the shell where the air cell is I could see that the chicks did not break the membrane.

I suspect it applies to most bird species but especially poultry.

How did your hatch turn out?

Some days you just have to put on the hat and remind them who they are dealing with. Release the flying monkies!
