Low Temp, Found Muscovy Eggs .. help needed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This is my first time trying to hatch Muscovy eggs I rescued from work about 2 weeks ago, I belI've they are on Day 35 give or take... I think I saw internal pipping 1-2 days based off of what I read on other forms, nothing has happened yet. When I first got them I kept them in the bathroom with the heat lamp on and they were moving.. I put the regular heat lamp and sponges with mini fan like many other people mentioned but now I can't see movement. Are they ok?

I read if you have low temps in the homemade incubator the incubation time may be longer. Just worried they are ok or maybe I should go back to keeping them in the bathroom with the heat lamp instead since I saw them moving during that setup. I live in florids hot and humidity most of the time here.

PLEASE if someone can reply and help me. Thanks. Attached is a quick pic of the setup

No has replied to my question... as an update I kept heat lamp on ,I can't see anything inside anymore or movement. I did another float test and they floated, today I will try again and see if there is any rocking. I thought I saw pipping a few days ago. Not sure if I should pop a little hole to see inside. Can someone please help or give advice. . I am trying my best but it's my first time trying to hatch an egg
