    Hi Everyone,
    I need your help. I have 5 ringneck pheasants, 1 red golden, 1 yellow golden all chirping and small cracks in the eggs All chirping but only small holes. I have read the humidit should be really high for them to hatch but I can only get it to 40%. I have added small cups to raise it but nothing is working. Should I help them by making small holes for them to breath. It has been 6 hrs since I saw the eggs move and it is decreasing and so is there chirping. PLEASE HELP. I'm sure I am like everyone else I don't want them to die

    It does take awhile to hatch,its hard work for those little things.I know baby chicks can take up to 24 jours to hatch out.
