I have a clutch of ringneck pheasants, chukar and quail supposed to be hatching out today. Nobody is doing anything.. I have a homemade incubator that keeps pretty perfect temp all the time, i can open the door and it doesnt drop temp unless i have it open for an extended period of time (like a minute or longer). Well i took my candler and candled one of my eggs last night at about 10 and saw that the baby was trying to pip through into the air cell. I left it alone and havnt checked it since. I dont know if it made it into the air cell or not, but my question is, how long does it normally take them to make it through that? and how long between internal pip and external pip? I am anxious and dont wanna lose anybody..
