Egg Color?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

We have our first clutch of eggs due to start hatching today or tomorrow! Yesterday, I noticed that 3 or 4 of the eggs are a distinctly pinky cream color while the others are a creamy white. Is there anything significant about this or is it just a natural variation?

Thanks for your thoughts. :wub:

Hi Daz,

 

No, to be honest I did not candle the eggs. This being our 1st clutch, I was happy to just leave well alone and let 1st time Mum do her thing without me harassing or frightening her! I think too I was a bit afraid of handling the eggs. So everything is unknown at the momment. But hatching should begin in the next day or two (if fertile). Its so exciting! (Laughing out loud)! :wub:

This morning I was doing my usual routine in the aviary and checked the nesting box and we have a brand new chick! Our very first babe! It must have hatched overnight!

 

I have nick named her jelly bean!

I have two eggs at the moment that are a darker yellow colour compared to the other ones whihch are white. Does this mean they will be hatching soon? The due date is around now.
