At 40 days after laying, Carolina Raptor Center notes egg unlikely to hatch

Sadly, it doesn’t look like there will be chicks this year for eagles Savannah and Derek at the Carolina Raptor Center.  At 40 days after the second egg was laid, they are noting that the egg was probably not fertile.   Hatching generally occurs 35-38 days after laying, so it is a bit beyond the expected time range at this point.  The other egg of the two that Savannah laid was lost (broken) Feb 10.

    1. hmm, I just let software calculate. so, calculating by hand Jan 24-31 = 7 days, Feb 28 days, today is 5th, so 7+28+5 = 40 whew had me wondering there about old Microsoft Excel program. lol And actually since the second egg was laid overnight from 24th to 25th, that might make it closer to 39 days.
