Noise inside egg?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay, goose egg supposed to hatch on the 15th or maybe today. Sometime nowish.

Air cell grew dramatically within these last few days. Like a lot.

I put my ear up to the egg and I hear this clicking noise. Its not a squeak it's almost like a thudding mechanical noise.

What is it? The chick almost looks like it's in the air cell... I can't tell. It's past the little line now, but I don't know.

Thoughts?

It's like tiny tapping from the inside, but I thought it was supposed to hatch on the 15thish.

My only thought was the pipping process has begun, but I feel like it's too early.

I know it started incubating on the 11th of last month. It's been 4 weeks exactly. So, I guess it's time to hatch afterall?

According to the goose incubation page I was looking at: 

  • The actual period of incubation of goose eggs varies slightly with the breed. Some eggs from the lighter breeds may start pipping after 28 days, while eggs from the larger breeds may take 35 days. It may take up to 3 days for hatching to be completed.

 

So if you set on the 11th of last month you are at day 29 so it is reasonable that it might be attempting to pip and seems to be on schedule.

It's either pure Brown Chinese or a mix of brown and another light breed. Maybe White Chinese, I'm not certain.
