Eggs are so interesting, don't you think? Their shells just seem to lure you in with what might be inside.
Baby Hatching ProcessEdit
It takes aproxamately 24 hours for an egg to hatch and about 5 days total for it to grow into an adult. You do not have to change the incubator settings at all, but I like to mess around and see what may pop out.
FAQs about EggsEdit
What does the incubator temperature do?
High and low incubator temperatures, while riskier, may cause changes to the developing chick inside an egg. In rare cases, an egg may even change color as it is incubated!
Why do my eggs keep breaking?!
You might want to try evening out the incubator temperature. Keeping it too high for too long can cook an egg, so to speak. Letting it get cold is no good either.
Or if you bred the egg and the mother griffin was incubating the egg herself, she might have been too young and inexperienced to care for it properly. Don't worry, as she grows up she'll learn better. It's very rare for an adult female to lose an egg.
My egg hatched into a chick of a completely different color, is something wrong with it?
Not at all! Only certain griffin chicks match the color of their egg shells. Most of them will naturally tend to be more brightly colored than their eggs, but it's also possible for them to be duller as well.
What will my griffin look like when it grows up?
That's hard to tell since griffins go through different stages of plumage which can be drastically different from one another. However, each different coat your griffin grows into will give you clues about what its final coloration will be. An expert griffin breeder can judge quite early on approximately how a griffin will look as an adult.
Why are there so many orange eggs?
Orange is a very common color for griffins in the wild: there are many different ways for a griffin's genes to make them orange.
Thus, not all griffins are created equal. Two identical orange eggs can have very different looking griffins inside, and two grown griffins that appear identical can have slightly different genes and thus different looking children.
As people selectively breed griffins for the traits they like, the common traits found in domesticated griffins may become quite different from the ones common in the wild.
