    Hi there
    First time For hatching wheaten maran eggs. They are on day 19. Lock down yesturday. Do they take long to start to pip?I know every breed is different. Some are early.....Do they need help out of the shell. Like are they have more difficulty hatching?

    Quote:I've incubated and hatched a lot of Marans eggs and I've never done anything different with them. My wheatens usually don't start to hatch until day 21.

    Thanks. Japs are on day 19 sometimes on day 18. Araucana are hatching now. Day 19... I guess the marans are later. But on time. If that make sense.
