Quaker eggs

If my Quaker eggs are viable and babies are growing inside egg. Should I pull them away from parents being that it’s past the 21 days ?


Hi Mary,

Definitely not. Quaker eggs can hatch anywhere between 18 – 28 days – but some can hatch later. The eggs should be left for at least 30 days from the day that the LAST egg was laid. Eggs do not begin to develop until 48 hours of incubation. So always give ample time or you may accidentally kill chicks that would have hatched in another day or so.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
