Day 24 final tally

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I started with 36 eggs, 4 didn't progress, probably no fertilization. 18 perfect chicks, 3 more with splayed legs that I'm working on, 1 that zipped halfway and died, 1 that was shrink wrapped but alive. I helped it but not sure if it will make it or not. I figured it was dead in the shell for sure so I might as well try. Humidity was 70-78% at the end and still would have died before getting out of that shell.. The others had 2 pips and the rest stink bombs. First time for me and it could have been tons worse. Thanks for all the help and encouragement.

One more surprised me for a total of 23 out of 36 and 2 of the ones with splayed legs seem fine now so I'm counting that as 63% which is not bad for me considering some were apparently not fertile and it was my first time. I'm ready to go again, lol.
