    Has this egg begun internal pipping?

    The pics are taken at a different angles and distances.
    Also, there are only 3 pics.
    The other 3, I just copied and drew a line on where the 'crack' was.
    So then, you guys could easily compare the actual picture with the copied version of that picture that has a black line over the crack.


    PS; They are on Day 25 now and still, I have seen no movement.

    Please, I need to know ASAP!!!

    Thanks In Advance!

    I say no. At hatching, the bird should be taking up so much of the egg that there's no more air pocket, but I'm certainly no expert.

    I didn't look at the pics(dial up) But if an egg has internally pipped, you should be able to hear peeping. Also upon candling(an internally pipped egg) Yopu'll see a little beak, moving around in the air cell. If they have internally pipped...you shouldn't be candling them [​IMG]

    Quote:I actually just read your whole post. If those are chicken eggs(21 day incubation) and you are on day 25 and you see no movement and hear no peeping, I personally would discard them.
