Egg Hatching 101: Day 17 Beak Turning


If your incubator has any type of rocking device like ours does (or automatic egg turner), today is the last day that is will need to be used. Tomorrow it should be turned off (or in our case, removed), and the eggs will be laid on their sides for the remaining incubation period. This gives the chicks a few days to orient themselves inside the eggs and prepare for hatching.

Day 17:

  • Beak turns for access to air cell
