never thought of that have the lamp for the brooder will give that a try, don't have pebbles so rolled dry watch clothes in any empty space inside and a blanket around the outside, will get pebbles when son gets home

Congratulations!  Patience is the key!  Don't open it up to check for pips!!!  I keep hearing chirping, but I realize it's just the babies in the other room....:(

I finally got first candle done on at almost day 7, we had one temp spike of 102 on day 5 and since then have not been able to get the incubator to get back up to normal, it's running 93-95 even upping the temp humidity is staying between 27 and 37 without adding anything at this point. cannot get new bator done until Friday, using LG 9300 digital with fan. IS there anything else I could do temporarily or are they going to be fine just slower growing?

 

results of candle were:

6 questionable

1 clear

16 looking good

not understanding why temps wont raise up for you, agree with everything the others suggested.  how cold is the room?  your thermometers were calibrated?

98-99 is low... but 93-95 is very low. If you can't get the temp back up, I'm sorry to say I don't see this ending well.

awwwwww your learning much in this one.:hugsYour did great, and I still think that bator has issues!    I dont like that the three of you with this same bator have so many mals...  something is not right...  the turning or amount of turning or something is off!  are you sure that try sits level inside the bator?  just strange!!!

Zippy Chick is out and declaring her domain over all. The one with the larger hole was clearly still stuck to the membrane (I think it's what folks call shrink-wrapped), so I helped him out - heaven knows how long it had been since he had pipped, it was toward the floor. 

For the two malpos that I helped that bled a little (so that I stopped) - both are breathing, cheeping, and beaks are out of the hole. How long should I wait before trying again? 

I was so paranoid about opening the incubator during lock down. It didn't occur to me the consequences of not seeing a pip. When I realized some pips were happening underneath, I should have quickly opened the incubator and turned them all upwards, so I could monitor them. So stupid...he.gif

hey, easy on yourself. You are learning, studying, and doing the best you know. You also won't do it again. Great job with those you are helping!

If you hear chirps, it means at least one chick has internally pipped. All the waiting is about to pay of, Seth! They should be hatching in a day or two... might even start today!!!   :yesss:

The chicks will be developing at a far slower rate than what's acceptable. Even .5F can delay hatching by a day or two. How many days will it add if it's 5F or more lower??? I don't think a chick can hatch and be healthy after being cooped up in it's shell for a month. I just don't see it happening...

True. Also late hatchers seem to fail to thrive alot.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

My mal positioned stopped thanks to recomendation of stopping egg turner with the LG at day 14-15, went from 9 out of ten down to 1-10

 

They were calibrated and holding steady when I set room tem was down to 65 so upped it back up to 75 ,
