What's the difference between an internal and external pip?
There is a membrane that surrounds the chick inside the egg. An internal pip means he has broken through that membrane. An external pip means he has actually broken through the eggshell itself.
My teacher used to say the only stupid question was an unasked one!
Thank you! Also, how can you tell if the chick has internally pipped yet?
Well, if you candle the egg on hatching day, you can probably see the chick moving around in the air sac after it pokes through the internal membrane; however, it's not really a good idea to have the incubator open and the egg out for candling at that stage, so it's best to just be patient and let nature take its course.
There aren't any stupid questions in the world. I say the same that Sjisty said, but a little bit diferent. It's more stupid who don't ask for something that don't know that one who don't ask.
Thank you, I didn't know about the internal and external pip so it's well to know about this.
