WelcomeSetterKate to Hancock Wildlife Victoria BC Hummingbird Thread... great to see your post and thank you for the question. Love your avatar...Wub

A pip hole is a small crack or hole which is made in an egg by a chick as it prepares to hatch. The appearance of pip holes is generally viewed as a sign that chicks are on the way, as the chicks generally fully emerge within a day or so of creating the pip hole, depending on the species. The process of breaking out of the shell is known as pipping.


A chick has a little bump on the top of its beak at the tip that is called an "egg tooth" it is specifically there as a "tool "for the chick to work its way out of the egg. Shortly after the chick has hatched, the egg tooth disappears.. the effort to pip the egg may so wear out the chick that the chick will take a break and rest , sometimes up to 24 hours before we will see a crack in the egg .


Watching eggs hatch can be quite interesting. At first, the egg will start to shake, as the creature inside moves around and uses its egg tooth to crack the shell. Then, the pip hole will appear, and the animal will slowly enlarge the hole until it can get out of the egg. Chicks often use their legs and feet to thrust their way out of their eggs once they have created a pip hole. This whole process can take an extended period of time, as it requires a lot of strength from the young animal.
