Worked with a local farmer to get some good eggs.
I did not add a drop of water until lock down.
Lockdown humdity was at 70-80%
Southern Eastern Virginia has a standard humdity level of about 40%
I did not candle the eggs at all
I did not bother the eggs at all
I did not mess with anything.
I just used my automatic turner and took them out after they all dryed.
I will check the eggs that did not hatch to see if the started to develop at all.
I am using a retired Laboratoy incubator.
I talked to several older people and they said a egg won't smell rotten enough to worry about unless it is cracked. They said a egg won't blow up unless your temps are too high. After listen to several older people that have been doing this for years I decided that all of the checks people do on different dates cause more issues then it is worth.
I will try this a few more time and report back.
