10 day serama egg candle. We are down to 17 eggs with wiggly baby chicks inside. The 18th egg was clear. I marked air cells again. not much change, but I don't know what I should be seeing lol. So here are some pictures. If you could advise on humidity levels I would be so greatfull! Thank you!
The majority are on the smaller or larger size? perhaps run at 40 and recandle day 12, IF the majority are smaller
I have an external pip in the middle of the egg. The beak is out and chirping. I think it is malpostioned because of where it pipped. Midline of egg. I know I should just leave it alone and wait for it to zip. The other two chicks that are hatched do go up and peck at it the hole. Is this normal? How long should I let it be? Til tomorrow morning?
MALPOSITIONS /PIPS WRONG END are the first to pip and the last DIS after hatch post #19606
Malposition (pipped wrong end) chick most times will hatch! VIDEO post #22241
Hi! I just moved 22 eggs to lockdown! 13 Salmon Favorelle and 9 of my own silkies. It's only day 18, but more than half already drew down, but others look like they have a ways to go. I'm leaving for the rest of the day, won't be home till tomorrow night, so thought it was better to move them a day early.
Happy Hatching everyone!
Someone else draws hearts on special eggs!!!! yay!!!!
Thank you Mike, still very slow!! I think that extreme wind blew the dish around a bit too much!!!
Welcome!!!! sorry about the last hatch!! you need any help or suggestions let us know!!
Should be lockdown on 19th.
Hatch on 22nd.
April first would be correct set day.
I have TWO gEESE ready to hatch tuesday!! one pipped the other internal!
Awesome!!! pretty too!! is that a tree farm? cool!
oh so glad the foal is good!! awwwww the poor thing musta gave you a fright!
I put it in the bottom of the little wire crate separator but not up the sides, my bad!!! ughhhhh oh well dont plan on setting ducks again for some time anyways!!
I have eight out and an egg to go yet thats pipped.
LOL it sure is!!!
Yay goose pips!! Hopefully you get 1 male 1 female, or 2 females!
And no, that is not a tree farm. It's just we have a lot of pine trees around here, and our back yard neighbors let theirs grow wild instead of cutting them down/tearing them out lol. Luckily we're on a plot that used to be farm land, but the farm went belly up...
oh Vanessa I hope your not in PA and bought on I sent to auction lol!!!!
here is a link, if you can figure it out, let us know please lol
So I have a goose egg with an internal pip. I have had bad luck with them so far. How long before they usually hatch.
I am not sure what kind it is. It is either out of my Sebastopols or Africans.
I've had this one in the past. It worked well for me too. I just didn't like the messing with keeping those wires just right for the door.
??? what wire?
So much exciting stuff this weekend!
I have duck eggs pipping! Seramas hatching. Emu eggs wiggling.
And... I got my very first ever Silkie egg! After all my hatching and loosing my first flock to raccoons, I have never gotten an egg before. So exciting
I also scored some Sebastopol goose eggs yesterday so I hope they will develop. . All my other goose eggs have been a bust.
EMU eggs wiggling!!!! HOW EXCITING!!! EMUS GONNA HATCH!!!!!
I know right? Where is my PITY PARTY!!!!!!!!! detestation!!!
I answered somewhere in all these multiquotes!
So my hens have figured it out for me, I will be setting:
7 americauna, 3 Columbian Rocks, 13 EE's, 6 white leghorn, and 9 silkie this evening.
I also have 8 silkie eggs under a broody who started to sit last Tuesday. Hopefully the mild weather holds and she stays put.
hi cc!!!!! I am sure she will stay put!!! if she is a silkie!!!!
This will be my first hatch along though I've read through a lot of old ones that got me hooked! I just hatched out 9 out of 11 chicks from my own mutt flock on March 20th all are doing great. I've just set on the 1st of April some eggs I bought in from a local breeder. I put in 12 black blue splash Ameruacana, and 30 black australorp. I'm pretty darn excited lol thanks for this fun opportunity!
GREAT HATCH!!!! I love black Austras!!! so pretty
awwwwww CONGRATS!!!!!! what color guinea?
I have 1 pipped turkey egg.
Had a 2 hour power outage today. Hope it didn't mess them up.
Had to work all weekend but got home in time to get my turkey eggs collected. My hens have given me 28 eggs in 3 days. So I should have at least 40 plus when I set on thurs.
I have that one too. I got tired of fighting the turner wire so I taped it place.
I think your ok after two hour outage!!! go babies!!
