    baby bird chirping inside its egg.

    my wirrows have had 3 eggs and i was told the incubation time is roughly about 18 to 21 days (before they hatch), but that time had been and passed and nothing was happening inside the eggs, but the eggs were still very warm!
    anyway, day 25 passed and i was getting worried that they wern't going to hatch. until now (day 26) they are starting to peep inside the eggshell.

    is it common for it to be that long before they hatch?

    they usually peep 24 to 48 hours before hatching - peeping starts when the chick breaks the egg sack and is breathing from the airpocket in the shell, they should be hatching soon
    when did you start counting? was it by any chance from the first egg? it is usually 18 to 21 days from when the parents start incubating the egg.
    tiels usually only start sitting on the eggs full-time when 3 or 4 eggs are layed, and since the eggs are layed every second day, it could take 26 or more days from when the first egg is layed until it hatches.

    oh thanx that explains it. she had three eggs making it 6 days before incubation meaning 20 days before peeping noises and possibly 21 or 22 days before hatching.

    congratulations on your new babies (if they have hatched yet)! What are you going to do with the babies when they grow up?

    YAY!
    the first one hatched this morning or overnight!
    s/he is healthy and the parents are very pround and let me have a look and both insist on sitting on the baby and the eggs together.

    its adorable.
