HATCHING PROBLEMS PLEASE HELP!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I incubate my own eggs and I get the best results with dry incubation the first 18 days. I think your own eggs are fresher so need to loose more fluid.

Is there a specific way you have to put them in the hatcher?

If they are in a turner they should always be set with the fat end of the egg up and pointy end down. This also goes for when you are storing them prior to incubation. At day 18 when you stop turning and bump the humidity up they should be taken out of the turner and placed on their sides in the incubator for hatch. The turner needs to be removed from the incubator so hatched chicks can't become trapped in it.

I keep them big side up and the humidity only changes the air sac which my air sacks seem to be just fine when I candle them.
