birdlover,

 Look here from the Home Page of this very site:

http://www.thatquailplace.com/raising/periodchart.htm

There is a massive amount of information, books availible, and links on the Home Page of That Quail Place.  I know that most, including me, go directly to the forum and overlook the home pages. Take a look, browse around.

No one minds answering your questions......that's what this site is about, but yet you've been around for a while and it seems as though you're just toying with us at times. You know about "pipping" and other details of incubation, but yet you're unsure of the days of incubation, so therefore, we get confused as to where you're coming from.

Maybe your first question in this post should have been..............

"If I quit turning my pheasant eggs a day or two earlier than they should have been, will they still hatch?"

..............which is ultimately what you wanted to know.          :eek:

Give them eggs some time, they may not hatch until day 27 or may not hatch at all, no need to get excited. There's nothing you can do, but wait and see.

Good Luck!

hi,
i'm currently incubating ringneck pheasants eggs and today is day 23, hatch day.  I don't understand why but none of the eggs are pipping yet, is the hatching period maybe 24 instead of 23.  i know  that all the eggs were turned during the incubation process, right temp, and right humidity.  Please help me out, i'm worried that they won't hatch, i have the brooder all set up and everything.
Well you mentioned that your eggs was losing weight. So if that is true then more then likely it's drying up and not going to hatch. Candle them to be sure.

x2 on the candling...

On another note, bird kid mentions "feeling" the weight difference. I call BS. It is so little no one will be able to tell the difference.

Computation of egg weight loss
The optimum weight loss over the incubation period of a game bird egg is calculated as follows:

(Wt x 15% devided T = Weight loss per day
Where: Wt = fresh egg weight; T = incubation period

If the fresh egg weight is known it can be calculated as follows:

0.548 x dia2 x length = fresh egg weight (grams)
Where: dia2 = diameter of the egg (in centimeters) squared
length = egg's length in centimeters

The rate of weight loss in incubating eggs can be easily be determined using the following formula:

(Wt2 devided Wt1) x (T1 devided T2) x 100 = projected percent loss in weight
where: W1 = fresh egg weight
W2 = amount of weight loss at time of weighing
T1 = incubation period
T2 = days of incubation at time of weighing

(I have charts showing this)

Crack it open... of course that will result in the loss of one chick.

hi,
so if that will result in the loss of a chick, then that means that they should be pipping and hatching soon,correct?

Actually it might be a blessing for these chicks.  Seriously, be patient if they don't hatch by day 28, crack one carefully at the large end.  See if there is any movement.  If so, put it back in.  But by that time, they will probably be too weak to survive.  Also, if your opening that incubator too much, the humidity will drop and you will cause the chicks to stick and die.  

But birdlover, really, don't you think the questions are getting really really old.  Do some research.  This is not really a chat room.  If you get really stuck and can not find another answer anywhere to your very basic questions, then don't hesitate to ask.  I am sure you will get an expert and friendly answer.

But, since you registered on May 28 2007, you have started 37 Topics and have posted 147 times.  Most of which you are giving advise about things you really don't know anything about.  Please refrain from giving advise, when you really don't know the answer.  The post counts don't matter here.  Most of us are into this as a business, not just because we think they are cute.  There is money involved.  I am at least 3 times your age and I really don't want you giving me advise.  You told someone in another thread that it was okay to let their birds roll around in gravel!   Come on, do your reading and research on everything you can find out before you go any further into raising anymore gamebirds.

Also, It seems you don't even know it when your being made fun of.  Don't think we really bought you accidently erasing the lightbulb thread.

No... it is VERY simple. If you crack the egg open BEFORE THE CHICK IS READY TO HATCH, then if it is alive it will probably die soon after. My reply was meant to say that candling is the only reasonable way of telling if the chick in the egg is alive, and then there is cracking open the egg, which is not reasonable as it results in the loss of the chick. There was a bit of sarcasm in that reply...

I second that... I had to correct you in that topic and we are not here to correct false info., we are here to give info. when it is needed... AND not just whenever it is something simple you can search maybe 30 sec. on google or something to find. There is no reason to FREAK out and post topics about how stressed you are... we don't care about how stressed you are...

hi,
yes mtbullion gamebirds, i understand.   I will try not to ask any dumb questions, and yes i will do some research before i starting asking.  With the eggs..... i will wait by day 28, i have another batch of pheasants eggs so if none of these hatch i'll put the next batch in.  i guess the only reason why i asked all those questions regarding pheasants eggs was b/c i was worried and nervous that my pheasants eggs won't hatch, i can stand it when i work so hard in something, in this case temp., humidity, etc, and i fail at it.      Thanks i will update you on the eggs, hopefully i have some chicks soon!!!

hi,
I have good new!!  Last night i went to go check on the eggs, i went to touch this egg and when i put it back into the incubator, i heard it chirp.  Boy was i excited, i had a feeling from that moment that i was going to have chicks.  Then when i came home and went to see the eggs, i saw one cute pheasant chick right in front of me, i was so happy i didnt know what to do.  I noticed another egg cracking so maybe i'll get more by the time tonight is over.  I just wanted to say a huge Thank You to everyone who helped me out during this journey.  I appreciate all of the useful information that i got from the questions.  I'm fixing the brooder now put have to get out tomorrow to buy their feed, i guess for now i'll give them the same food i fed to the button quails last year.  I will post pictures soon.  Thanks Again!!!!!
