Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by ssellis, Apr 1, 2012.
Eggs are full, but how can you tell if they are alive?
Have you seen them rocking? Or heard any faint tapping or peeping? Those are usually the easiest ways.
If you have a flashlight, you can shine it on the egg for a few seconds and see if that makes it rock.
Otherwise, we sit and wait.....
I've had some that were rocking feverishly during lockdown that never hatched, and others that didn't move and hatched.
By "full" do you mean you've candled them? Are you incubating them, and if so, how long have they been in? You can usually see movement within the egg when you candle them, and if they are close to hatching time, like within a day or two, you might even hear a chirp or two from the egg. Hope this helps
yes they are in incubator,candled day 18, what would shrinked eggs look like, they are dark and full
