Egg Question

Recommended Posts

Hi, just a question... what is the hatch rate of chicks taking 2 days to hatch? Did I get lucky with Thimble hatching? She took 2 days to finally crack the egg. I have read that they have died if they take that long. Has anyone had any chicks taking this long? Yeah, I know, stupid question, but I just wanted to know if Thimble was really lucky or is it normal. ;)

I am sure you meant to say hatch not hate so I edited.

Do you mean from the time they pip the air cell til the time they pip the eggs shell? it can take 2-3 days from internal pip til external pip. And from external pip til hatched it can take another 1-3 days, but usually after 2 they seem to get weak and may not survive.

You can normally hear the chick chirping too... If you listen carefully you will hear a soft chirping from inside meaning the chick is still happy or you will hear a distressed chirping sound that is when you will need to help the chick hatch...
