How do you tell if an egg is alive or dead?

It should have a smooth, unmarked shell if it is still alive. Shine a bright flashlight through the egg in a dark room, and look closely at the inside. If the egg is alive you will see veins running through it. The process of removing dead or rotten eggs during incubation that uses this method is candling.

What happens if eagle eggs don't Hatch?

Once the chicks hatch, the parents don't get rid of the shells. The broken shells sit at the bottom of the nest sometimes for a long time before getting crushed into tiny pieces. If eggs don't hatch, adults will initially continue incubating, then start spending longer periods off the eggs and eventually give up.

What is a pip in an eagle egg?

The eggs hatch on or very close to the 35th day. About 4 days prior to hatching the developing chick's “egg tooth”, a small hard and sharp calcium spike on the top of the bill, pierces the membrane separating the developing chick from the air bubble above the chick. This is called the internal pip.
