Once a peachick has pipped, how long does it generally take the chick to hatch? Today is day 27, well really day 28, for either a Blackshoulder or White peachick that pipped around 12 hours ago, he seems to be making good progress, he's made a pretty good size hole, so I can see his foot and beak easily and he's breathing normally it appears. The humidity is around 70% and temp is around 101 in a still air table top incubator - both vent holes are open so he can get fresh air. I used a broody hen for 3 weeks, then moved the eggs to the incubator - from research seems to be a great way to hatch, we will see. I know with turkey's, pheasants, chickens - they usually pip, rest for a while, then zip and hatch most of the time within 24 hours or so, though I've seen it take longer. The peachick appears to be very well (from what I can see), I just thought it looked different than other species eggs and wondered if that's normal for a peafowl egg? Also, I don't want to rush him in any way, just curious about other's experiences with pea eggs.
