Anyone know how long it takes to get out of the shell?
Sometimes it can take as long as 24 hours or even a bit more in some situations for it to emerge.... Please just back away from the incubator and don't open it....This is sooo hard to do....Believe me I know after hundreds of hatches now I have literally had to leave the room.....Keep us posted and Praying you'll have a Blessed Hatch!
That's good advice, you can watch if you can leave them alone, if not, go paint the bedroom. Best of luck!
Oh boy, it's probably a good thing I don't have an incubator, I don't think I could keep from picking at that! Good luck with the hatch!
Quote:Lol I understand that my last hatch I left and went to the lake for the day so that I wasn't here and couldn't interfere hehe.
mine took about 12 hours total. but i've had hatches take as long as 48 hours.
Seriously go paint the bedroom. Its the worst.
24 hours later the chick is a little further along
Is it just me who thinks this way?
I honestly believe that the reason why most hatches fail is because people just won't leave the eggs alone.. they constantly have to poke and fiddle with them.. i have seen some people who are in and out of the bator candling eggs every day and messing with the temperature and humidity.. then when they see a pip have to go and mess with that.. and then wonder why the chick died.. or have wild temperature fluctuations cause they can't leave the darn thing alone.. then worry and crack open a perfectly good egg and kill the chick..
methinks they need a lesson in patience!
