oh gosh what does it mean to be sticky? yes i was able to get the temp up and the humidity has been at 60% since yesterday. if i were to create the safe hole would i have to wrap a paper towel around him or anything? i can hear him peeping from outside the incubator and the egg is moving every now and then lol is that all normal?
NO, you don't have to wrap him up, that's why I said small hole. Very small, just enough for him to ONE aim for and TWO to breath. Once he sees the light coming from the hole, hell aim right up to it..
Sticky. This is got to be the worst thing. There's four factors that can cause it, One to low of temp, Two to high of humidity, three a dirty incubator and four poor air circulation. BUT most likely cause of sticky baby is high humidity. Is like a BLOB of gooey stuff that covers them complete and it basically suffocates them. There's NOT a whole lot you can do, A friend and I have been experimenting with sticky eggs trying to come up with a way to help the babies escape safely
