Egg Hatching 101: Day 20

We are on Day 20 of our egg incubation and everything is pretty quiet. Other than making sure that the humidity is staying above 65%, we're leaving the incubator completely alone. The temperature is staying pretty consistent still around 99.5-99.6. In the last several days of incubation, the chicks are producing some of their own heat so the incubator isn't having to do as much.

On Day 20:

  • The lungs are using the air cell to breathe completely now
  • Occasional soft peeping may be heard, and sometimes eggs can be seen moving a little
Tomorrow marks the big day!!
