update day 24-not good news

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by equine chick, Mar 27, 2008.

  1. I'm starting to get a little worried, nothing. I decided to candle one egg. He's moving in their, maybe they need a couple of more days???

    I'm in the same boat as you, except I'll be day 20 at 7:00 tonight. I tried a stethoscope last night on them but it just didn't work.

    If only I could just hear a little peep....

    i am with you on this as well. I pipped the fat end of the egg and the baby is kicking in the membrane so hopefully he will hatch tonight or tomorrow

    I hope alot of your eggs hatch everyone.
  5. I candled one and he has not reached the membrane yet, but he was moving. So maybe tomorrow. I was afraid to bother the air sac I felt I was better to leave it alone.

    I only did it to one to make sure they are still alive. He is kicking up a storm so I hope he is trying to make his way to the air sack. I hope you get some hatches to equine. I dont want both of us to not have anything
  7. Fingers crossed and sending all of you lots of hatching energy!! The wait is the worst!

  8. Still nothing but I candled one of the white amercaunas and they were moving pretty good. I will just leave them alone and wait. Dh told me we are going out to dinner to get me away from the eggs.
