    Scattered hatch date--can't stop turning eggs

    So a while ago I posted a thread about 6 eggs that I took from a broody hen that I didn't trust. OF the 6, 5 were fertile and they are all doing well. But my family decided that since we are using such a huge incubator, they wanted to add 12 more eggs. And then 3 more. And then 7 turkeys eggs...

    I have a very small flock of chicken and one of them went broody so I decided I would get eggs for her because my incubator try was a fail. The eggs are going along greatly. Sadly we lost one towards the beginning but I ran into a problem about 2-3 days ago... my eggs are very close to hatching...

    Hen hatching abandoned quail eggs

    My neighbors had ripped up some bushes and found quail eggs. They set them nearby but the were abandoned. I have a broody silkie so I ran and grabbed them. She has been sitting on them for about a day. The neighbors said they were sitting there for about a week, any chance they could hatch?

    Inconsistent hatch times

    I have a flock of free range chickens and my family is pretty good at recording the date when our broody girls start sitting on eggs full time along with how many eggs they have. Since we’ve started this though we’ve noticed that usually it takes anywhere from 23-27 days before we start seeing...

    Put eggs into lockdown too early?

    Hello everyone. I have 5 eggs in the incubator currently, and all of them were developing nicely. It’s my first time incubating and hatching eggs, so I’m not sure what to expect. I ended up putting them all into lockdown one day early after getting my days wrong, and now I haven’t seen any signs...

    Hatching big duck eggs

    Hi, I have eggs in the incubator and I have 1 really big duck egg in there too. I thought their would be twins in the big egg but there is only one duckling in it. They are supposed to hatch Friday but I’m not sure how it will be able to get out of the egg. Since it’s a big shell he’s only in...

    Broody not in lockdown, day 20

    My banty broody was off her nest today for awhile eating and drinking and it’s day 20! Does this mean she thinks the eggs aren’t viable? She got right back up on the nest when she was done but I’ve always read lockdown starts on day 18 and they stop getting up. It’s my first time with a broody...

    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...
