probably gonna drown cause of the high humidity. but time will tell!
I FOUND A BIG NO NO in hatching, This was the first time I pulled empty shells out early. first time EVER!
I had a trampled chick and it looks like they pulled his umbilical strings at hatch, he must have bled
and they just had a pecking field day on him after that. Had the shells been in there,
it probably would have given him some space to hatch and dry up because he would have been surrounded
by empty shells and in some "cover" he is actually in this image, I didnt see him until I checked the serama.
early AM all pipped at the same time basically
Interesting. I always remove the broken shells, even from the Broodies, but when using the incubator I also remove chick that completely detached from thier shells as soon as I have 2, as each one gets to over 10 mins old. I have some peeping in the bator right now.
I never do, and leave chicks in so I have a close hatch window, like I said 12 hours and done was perfect. I pulled shells this time because I had serama eggs in there and they were getting put inside the others, They really do help each other hatch quicker.

I am setting bcm, fwm, ccl, welbar, Isbar, cochin, fly tie genetic hackle barred rocks and lbcm I can set up to 8 dz after shipping to others who ordered some
Vit C sprays studies show improved hatching, I posted those studies in the diary thread but I had no idea they had actually made a spray available to gen public. Very interested in seeing what you have and tracking with your updates, if you can tag me in updates I would really appreciate it, I have no clue how great I will be able to follow along when this gets to moving quicker.
Good Morning everyone!!
