    i am hatching black copper marans, turkeys, pheasants, and guineas.
    I know how long it takes for the turkeys, pheasants and guineas to hatch
    but i dont know how long it takes the black copper maran chickens to hatch,
    I know it takes a chicken 21 days to hatch but its been almost 4 weeks and i was wondering
    if they took a little longer because they egg is about the size of a duck egg. There is activity in these eggs but nothing is hatching
    Humidity, Temperature, and everything is set right.

    I don't know about BCM eggs but I think four weeks is a long time. Are you sure you still see movement? Sounds like they might have quit. [​IMG] Sorry.

    Should be about 21-23 days.
    If you still see movement that is a good sign [​IMG]
