    6 Indian Runner Duck Eggs in Janoel 12 - Day 28 and no Pips

    Hi there, I am on Day 28 with my 6 eggs, and see and hear nothing yet. We miscalculated by a day so the eggs went into lockdown a day later than they should have (Day 26) - so we didn't candle them as I didn't want to disturb them. Prior to that, all were moving and seemed to be growing fine on...

    Wobbling eggs

    my sister is attempting to hatch eggs for the 3rd time and these ones seemed successful we’re on day 20 and they was moving and wobbling yesterday but they haven’t seemed to move at all day today? Is this normal? Could they have all died? How often did all your eggs move/wobble? tia 🐓 🐣

    Emergency hatching no incubator

    Long story short, my first time broody abandoned her eggs at around 18-20 days (different egg age by up to few days). I have noted her out and about and not coming back to the nest anymore and not willing to sit despite my efforts. I am a first timer and very spontaneously decided her to let...

    Hello! I have a lovely silkie sitting on 6 eggs, 10 days until they hatch! She has been sitting on her eggs in one of the boxes in the coop that has a ramp to get into the house . I’ve been worried that when the chicks hatch that they could fall off the ramp/out of the house so thought that...

    Hi! Advice and help needed!

    Hi!, It's my first time incubating eggs and we hit day 22. Out of thirty eggs 11 have hatched and are currently in the brooder. We have only opened the incubator twice so far, once yesterday and once today to assist a hatch. That chick is in the incubator right now and is asleep and breathing...

    3 days to hatch, air cell way too small. Should I pip?

    Hi all. 3-4 days til hatch. The air cell is way too small due to high humidity. I mean way too small. There is movement inside the two eggs (kicking and jerky movements) when candling. These are mandarin duck eggs. The air cell is probably half of what is should be, I know that the temp was...

    First time mama HELP!

    Hey all! I have a first time broody who has been doing really well. Last night (5/27/20) we moved her into her own space in order to keep the other hens out of her nest since the hatching day is getting close. (three or 4 days to go) She was not at all happy and tried to go back to her old nest...

    I’m so close to chicks!

    My eggs went on lockdown yesterday and it’s so dang hard to wait for them! Some of them candled really well, like this one. I have 35 eggs in. Hopefully I’ll get good odds and they’ll survive. 🤞🏻

    Day 22

    Hey everyone we are at Day 22 of 6 eggs in the incubator. I candled them about 6-7 days in and saw development in all but one (because I couldn’t see through the dark, hard shell). Well here we are at day 22 and there is no pipping or anything going on. Temp and humidity are where they should be...

    Hi, this is my first time hatching duck eggs ( or any type of egg for that matter). My 9 Rouen duck eggs are on day 25 in the incubator ( Hova-Bator).

    Got a wild egg but no brain to back it up

    It's my first post so bare with me. I'll try not to make it too long. I have Muscovies all around my house. About 2 years ago, Daisy developed what I believe to be bumble foot and struggled terribly so I made sure she was fed and taken care of. She since then has had 3 hatchings (not sure the...
