Are these chicken eggs we're talking about? How's your humidity? I had 1 egg hatch on day 24 and day 25, so don't give up hope. Do you hear any cheeping?Day 21 and no pips or chirps. I candled them friday and saw movements. Locked down a day later though. Any advice? Really hoping they hatch. TIA!
I've heard nothing to be honest. I'm so beyond anxious. First time here. Humidity looks good but not 1000% sure since I'm new.Are these chicken eggs we're talking about? How's your humidity? I had 1 egg hatch on day 24 and day 25, so don't give up hope. Do you hear any cheeping?
When I picked up one of ours, which was on day 24, to throw it away, it cheeped. Try playing a YouTube sound of a mama hen 'talking' to her chicks and them cheeping back and see if you can hear anything from your eggs.I've heard nothing to be honest. I'm so beyond anxious.

I'm so relieved. So when from it chirping to pip is usual? I looked it up and there is so so so much conflicting information. This is my first time so I'm like a momma waiting for labor and trust me I have 4 kids and that was hell.Yes! That mean someone is calling, "I'm here, I'm here, is anyone else out there?" Now you can wait and see if the chick cheeping can get out, you can candle and see if she has internally pipped, and/or you can do like I did and actively help. Waiting can be risky if the chick, for whatever reason, can't get out without help - but helping too soon, or in the wrong way, can also be fatal. It's a hard decision to make. I helped several of mine but that was because the eggs were shipped and some of the air cells were in the wrong place.
Many experienced folks here would advise you to wait, and that's often the best idea. If the egg you are examining is cheeping though, it's internally pipped (at least I think I'm right on this) because it has to have its head in the air cell to take in air and cheep. So ...you most probably have an egg or eggs that have internally pipped. Now you wait and see if you get an external pip...a tiny crack you can see, from the inside going out. At that point with any luck, the baby "zips' the shell all the way around and tumbles out into the world. This can take a whole day.
