I've hatched eggs a few times but I've never seen a pip at day 19. Too early for a pip? I have an assortment of eggs (brown, cream, white, green) and two green smaller eggs are on there way out. I was wondering if anyone else had pipping this early
Glad you could join the flock! I've had pips day 19 and then hatchers day 20. In fact my hatch last weekend I had a pip day 19 and this chick arrived along with another day 20 ~
21 days is just a guide and not set in stone. Sometimes a slightly higher incubation temp can cause an early hatch but this may not be the case all the time. When they are ready they are ready.
Here is a lovely article on incubating and hatching ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-101
Good luck with your future incubations and enjoy BYC
