Eggs developing on one side only?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am using my Janoel 24 incubator for the first time and it has an automatic turning function. I candled on day 7 and it seems that all eggs are developing on one side? In the past I used a automatic turner with my little giant and the eggs didn't develop like this.

I turned them all on the opposite side that wasn't developing and put them back in the incubator. All but two embryos are alive and well at this point. It seems this automatic turning function moves them just very slightly.

Help please!

That is normal! It is called gravity! The chicks will always stay at the bottom of the egg. It is natural and you will get a better hatch this way!

Post a candling pic of what you mean?

I'll take a better photo soon, when I candle I just see the majority of veins on one side of the egg. Air cells still look normal

If you are still early in the incubation that is normal, by day 14 the egg starts to really fillup.
