Incubating my Assorted Bantam's Eggs

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So the ladies have been laying pretty heavily the last couple of days so we've collected some eggs and I started them late last night. Here are a few pics of the 13 eggs I put in the incubator.






This is mostly just to see whose breeding, but also we would love to have a few more hens.

So I float/ water candled today and 9 of the 11 sunk fast. So those are out and I have two left but only one looks developed inside. The other one might have just turned bad enough to float, but most of the egg is still under water.

I think either the temp spiked and we didn't catch it (weird weather) or I handled them too much... Either way... A little bummed.

We can always try again I guess.... So just an update.
