EGGS STARTED PEPPING AT 11AM AND THEY HAVE STOPPED PEPPING
WHAT DO I DO
Have they pipped the shells? I haven't ever incubated, so I can't tell you. But the more info you can give, the more help you'll get from all the hatching geniuses on here.
YES 5 OUT OF 12 PIPPED THE SHELL BUT THAT WAS 13HRS AGO AND THEY HAVENT PEPPED ANYMORE
I've been reading a lot lately about incubating, getting educated to start soon, and lots of people say that hatching sometimes takes 24 hours after pipping. Are the babies peeping and making noise? Can you see them breathing?
During the pipping and zipping process the babies take long quiet naps to regain strength. It is a very hard job getting out of the shell. It can take anywhere from 6 -30 hours. Make sure your humidity is UP and let them be it is all you can do. They don't always peep or move.
