Egg Hatching 101: Day 14 Bones and Shifting


Day 14 means only one week to go!  Time to start getting your brooder planned out and ready if you haven't already done so. Chicks will be hatching before you know it!

One Day 14:

  • Bones in the chick are starting to ossify (harden), including the skull.

  • The chick is beginning to shift around in the egg to face the wider end







This post is part of a series about hatching eggs on The Farm at Beaman’s Fork blog.
