I cant remember when I set this batch of eggs

post #1 of 4

Im so mad at myself because I just cant remember. I always put it on my calendar but this time I got so busy and sidetracked I forgot. As best I could tell when I candled they looked around day 15-18 so I locked them down saturday night late. What happens if its too early...am I going to loose this whole batch???? Im so worried.

Go to the learning center and take a close look at candling pics.  Compare the development of your egglets to those pics.  As long as you lock down after day 14, you should be fine.  An other thing to pay close attention to is air cell size.  Don't boost your humidity if the air cells are too small.  But, obviously, if you hear chicks talking in there, or get an external pip, you'll then need to jack the humidity up.  Congrats on impending hatch!

I have read you can stop turning at day 11, so you are probably fine.
