Yesterday I had my first successful hatch. This morning found another egg with a pip. The first one took 24 hours, so thinking I have time. Checked egg an hour ago and still just a pip. Just went to check again and baby is out (this egg came from a friend, either naked neck or show girl??) But I noticed the yolk sac isn't detached from her yet and lots of blood vessels in shell. Is this normal?????? I'm not touching her at all, but worried to the max that she hatched herself too early!! Help!!!

It can take up to 24 hours for them to hatch and sometimes early hatchers. This one should be fine, just leave it alone for now.

She broke free herself/himself and is fine!! Freaked me out because of everything I read about blood vessels being absorbed first and all that.
Did figure out later when I saw the other side of the egg shell where I marked that the chick is one of my eggs from my naked neck and daddy is my EE rooster.

Interesting! It looks like you have a variety of egg colours in there, similar to my incubator right now


Good luck with your hatch.
