I'm concerned about this two eggs. Not much progress. Do they look ok?
Yes, from what I can see. Keep the incubator closed so there is no variation in humidity and temperature. Good luck.
They look fine!
In the egg on the top of the picture... is the pip in the fat end? I can't really tell which end is bigger. How long have they been this way?
They look good. Should be soon! How long has it been since first pip?
It's been 8 hours I think.
Eggs can definitely take upwards of 12 hours (several of mine even took 24 hours) to begin "zipping" the shell to hatch. I wouldn't worry about them! Hope your hatch is successful!
Another egg pipped a hole, but I'm seeing blood. Is that ok?
Yes. If the chick pipped the egg do not worry unless there is an excessive amount of blood; a little blood is not unusual.
Often a chick will pip into a prominent vein, especially in a malepositioned pip where the pip is happening outside of the air cell. A small aount of blood usually is not a big concern.
This is what I was thinking...where was the pip? I've personally never seen blood when the pip is in the air cell but I have seen it on a malpositioned one. Even saw a big blood clot once. If the chick is still peeping and breathing, it is usually ok. Do you have a pic, op?
