    Goose eggs and movement

    Hi, I’m hatching two goose eggs for the first time and they are both going wrong on day 13! My question tho is how much should they be moving? Mine look like they are having a rave in there, can they move too much? Thanks

    Hatching chicks the old timey way

    Does anyone on here hatch chicks the old timey way? We’re looking into doing this in the spring/summer when we won’t need a brooder. We live in the south so our summers are hot. I remember my mother marking the eggs and letting the hen set but can’t remember what to do leading up to this so...

    Best time to hatch eggs

    When should I buy and hatch eggs? I'm in northern PA so winter is cold. I have a lot of space inside and could put them in one of the guest rooms in my basement. If I want the to lay sometime in the spring should I start now?

    Newly Hatched Silkie, Can’t Stand, Lays on Side

    Hello! I’m a new chicken mom, and I we had two successful hatches. Alas, the third had a dried membrane and ended up being somewhat of an assisted hatch (it pushed itself out at the end but we had to wet the membrane). For the first two hours it was able to waddle around properly and then it was...

    Should I be worried?

    So this is a duck, but regardless. His little foot, and beak are out of the shell, but he doesnt have enough shell gone to get out? Is he stuck? Is there something I need to do? Or does this happen often? I never experienced this with chickens, but it could be because I have never noticed...

    My first perfect hatch; 7/7 Silkies!

    Howdy BYC! Tonight was hatch day for the last set of shipped eggs for the year. I won an auction I didn't expect to win for some bearded silkies and, after using HatchBright liberally almost every day when I opened the lid, I had a perfect hatch in my incubator, my very first ever! I am so...

    Mama hen pecking at hatching babies

    I have this hen, sweetest little thing, and we let her hatch her own eggs. They're hatching today and she's been pecking at the pipping hole of one egg. If we turn the egg upside-down so she can't see the hole she slides it under her like normal. There's already one dead baby that died while...

    I think I killed a chick by helping hatch!!!

    Thank you in advance! I just hatched my second group with a broody hen. They were fertilized at different times so after the first five hatched the momma hen kept kicking the last two eggs out. I thought she was just tired of sitting so I tried to put them under another hen. One pipped but...

How many days past 21 can it take for the eggs to hatch. My temp has been kept between 99-101 but my humidity has been high. The whole time it...

    External Pip but no movement/peeps

    Hi, I’m on day 20 today and I’ve woken up to find an external pip. I haven’t seen any movement in the egg and heard no sounds (I’ve played chick sounds and gently tapped on the incubator glass). Humidity has gone down to around 61% during the night so not sure when I should up it. Is this...

    Hen was broody for 1 day?

    1 of my GLW hens went broody and sat on nothing for 24 hours because I took 3 eggs out from under her, tonight she is back on the perch with the rest. I was hoping to place fertile eggs under her tomorrow but dont know that I should trust her now? Did removing the eggs take her off the brood?
