An egg at 22 days and no signs of pipping. Can they be late under a broody???
If you do things well, do them better. Be daring, be first, be different, be just.

I presume they are chicken eggs? And yes apparently they can be late, someone warned me mine might be late when I was having trouble with a broody being restless. (Less than a week ago.)
I demand the right to buy seed of varieties that are not "distinct, uniform and stable".
