hello everyone, need some help trouble shooting what I am doing wrong at lock down, have very high mortality rate between lock down and hatch, use the built in a meat thermometer and an accurite for temp monitoring and humidity
I am using a LF fan force with egg turner and temps and humidity stayed steady the until increased the humidity and stopped turned at day 18 at lock down to 60-65, turner had 38 viable eggs, this time had 1 hatch and fine, next day 1 hatched with a little help as couldn't get more than the external pip, some have died but some are still alive in there so left them. When I did the 10 day candle looked like a few were a few days behind the others developmental wise.
Previous attempt was Dry incubation of 14 eggs and all 14 were viable at lock down, stopped turned at day 15 increased humidity to 60-65 and 7 internally pipped and spiked a temp of 110 and killed the whole hatch
also have a question on this chick I had to help, she's chirping and talking to the one already hatched, put her in a bowl in the incubator as she has a sack that looked more like intestines on the out side of an open navel,, left her in the incubator in bowl in case any others hatched , it has been 12 hours and all it looks to have done is drained a greenish liquid out of the sack. anything else I should be doing for this chick or just wait ans see what mother nature says?
