    The reson for egg pipping at day 22 is that it probably was being incubated even before it gone into the incubator reason 1 too much heat ambient temp is too high or no 2 you are storing eggs for too many days

    Yes goosegate move it to the hatcher asap as the lower humidity in the incubator is not good for the hatching chick try to put it into the hatcher swiftly but carefully as being exposed to air reduces the humidity and you dont want the chick to be stuck inside good luck

    x2 on good luck! Also, check your incubator temps -- common cause of early hatch is temps a little high. Some peas (especially spaldings) will hatch day 26 or so, even with correct temp. Has it pipped yet? Or is it just rocking & rolling?

    Hi some advice needed incubator temp is hard to control due to high ambient temp which is 44 45°c can seem to bring down the incubator temp and advice or tips would be very helpful thankyou
