I have a question!


Today ,my seramas are starting to pip.They were shipped eggs from California.
The first egg pipped and has a red substance that is dried up.The substance looks like it came from inside the egg.It`s dried up but I can still hear the chick.Should I be worried that its blocking the hole?What is this?

At first ,I thought it was blood but it looks too thick for it to be blood.

I also have another question!


When I candled the eggs, their air sack seemed big or it didn`t look right.Should I be worried about this?
Could this be a result from the shipping?I have incubated a few times before and none looked like my own eggs that I incubated before.


Thanks!

Hmm...you have hatched before so you have seen the veins. How many days till hatch day is my first question.

Serama's sometimes have a difficult time turning in the egg and some do not hatch. I think I would leave the baby alone and let it do its thing. Hard to tell....but you can hear it churp, that is good.

All my serama eggs came with loose and weird air cells and I got them from 4 different people and places. I think it's just one of the reasons they don't ship and hatch well.

I would still guess it's blood. Some conditions can make blood thicker, it could be mixed with something, or it could just be cause it was partially dried. I wouldn't worry yet. I had a few eggs hatch with bloody pips and they did fine but took a little longer to get out than some others.
