I am hatching peafowl eggs and cannot find accurate info on how long from internal to external pip. I have spent 6 hrs reading this group threads, I still have no clue. Some write 6 hrs , 8, 12, 24 or more. Others write that chick dies after 8 hours after internal pip if it doesn't break outa shell. I wonder now if people just repeat misinformation they read/hear. Please I need an expert to advise me! Peafowl egg day 25 internal pip 24 hrs ago , clear loud tap tap tap egg moved about. At that time 24 hrs ago, I placed into another forced air havabator 99.8F @ 75% humidity. Now 24 hrs later I see no movement of egg. No external pip . egg is placed in the air cell proper hatch position. Can I open to check egg? some say never open on last 3 days. some one PLEASE HELP !!!!
