Poultry Day 2017 is on Sunday, March 19, 2017: in poultry what does pip mean as in 18 days pip 21 days hatch?
Sunday, March 19, 2017 is Poultry Day 2017.
Indeed, it’s a fowl, fowl day – Poultry Day, that's! Celebrate this complete selection of domestic feathered buddies which are elevated for his or her meat and eggs by considering precisely how boring Thanksgiving, Christmas along with other holidays could be without adding a poultry, chicken, duck, goose or pheasant towards the table. How naked would your fancy salad do without a quail’s egg quivering at the very top? How incomplete would that Chicken Pot Cake be without…well…the chicken?It's for those these reasons and much more that people stop and express gratitude to chicken for improving your diet and providing us possibilities to battle within the wishbone, draw lots over who will get the final drumstick, and encourage brother or sister competition allowing them fight out whose transform it would be to crack the egg in to the cake batter. Whether it’s a honk honk, gobble gobble, or perhaps a cluck cluck, everything sounds exactly the same to all of us – scrumptious!
When a egg is said to have pipped, it means the chick has broken in to the air space at the top of the egg, this is when it takes it's first breath of air.
Not all chicks pip on day 18, some don't until day 20.You can see with the aid of an egg candler when shined at the egg, the tiny beak that has broken the air sac.
After 18 days of incubation you should stop turning the eggs(so the chick can get into hatching position ) and add more water to the incubator and close the vents to increase the humidity.The most important part now is Not to open it again until all the eggs hatch, the chicks are dry and fluffy.

a heated poultry waterer?
There are solar poultry waterers, but I have heard that they do not work very well if your temperatures get very far below freezing. I live in Montana, and it gets very cold here. What we do is keep 2 wateres: one in the coop, and one in the laundry room to thaw. We swap them out at least 3 times a day. This requires no electricity, and I guess it's how folks did it in the days before electricity. Otherwise, you will have to run an extension cord to your chicken coop. Good luck to you!
Here's a link to the solar poultry waterer:
