Pipped Eggs

Cynthia asked in a comment, “What is a pipped egg, please?”

A pipped egg is one that has been cracked by the chick at hatching time. When eggs are placed in an incubator for hatching, a sign that the chicks are going to hatch is when the eggs are pipped or cracked. It is important to look out for pipped eggs so that you can check the length of time it takes the chicks to hatch out.
