Eggs not hatch


Eggs are not hatched after 31 days what do I do


Answer:

Hi Jarrod,

You didn’t mention what species you have, and the incubation period is different depending on the species. The incubation period counts from the time each egg is laid, so since most are laid every other day, the last egg laid will hatch a week or more after the first to hatch. If the parents do not abandon the eggs, you can remove the eggs about a week after the last egg laid is past due.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
