We collected two eggs from the farm on July 6th, It was very hot that week 102 degrees plus...we made a home made incubator and kept the temp between 95 and102. it did get up to 104 to 106 a few times but just for a short period...the humidity has fluxuated,,,30 to 50 ish.
We did not cool the eggs as I did not know at that point that we were supposed to and it was so hot out....we did candle them about 2 weeks ago and it looked like there was air space in both. I pretty much thought that we were past the time so for the past few days I just kept the light on but the cover off so it was around 95-97 degrees,,,anyway yesterday eve we noticed a drop of golden colored liquid on the top of one of the eggs...is that pipping ? it hasn't progressed since then. I spritzed them just a bit ago (because the humity was just around 35%) and now there looks to be some white foamy stuff on to pf the large golden drop. Is this chick trying to hatch? Is there a problem if it hasn't progresses since last night? I read in on another site that you could "help" the chick if if doesn't progress but I am leary of doing that,,,but also wondering if it is too late. Quick adivice is needed. Thank you.
