Day 20 and still no pip

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is there something I can adjust to help things along or is this little guy just a late hatcher? I upped the humidity this morning from 65% to 70%. The egg has been wobbling since early yesterday morning, with the wobbles gradually getting bigger throughout the day yesterday. But today, it's back down to almost nothing. Help?

It's a chicken egg. I thought that day 21 was the day that they hatch, usually. If I understand correctly, it can still be up to 24 hours after pip before they begin to finish hatching. So this guy isn't behind schedule?

they can go from no pip (internal or external) to hatched in as little as a few minuets, and some can take 30+ hours from pip to hatch, if your temp was correct and steady then they should hatch day 21, some can come early, some late but no your not behind schedule.
