What should I do?? My daughter's teacher hatched two eggs in a classroom incubator last year. We took them home...50/50, got one hen and one rooster. Trying to do full life cycle here...she had the incubator going again with eggs the school get and I put 7 of our eggs in to see what happened. One went bad. Two hatched on Friday (they are in the brooder). My 4 are the only ones left. Today is day 24. We had agreed to wait until today (Monday) before pulling the plug. Before I let her I wanted to do the float test just to make sure. 3 didn't pass but one is bobbing and rocking. She doesn't have a thermometer or way to read humidity in the incubator. I put a small thermometer in and it appears to be about 97 degrees (I don't even know how to turn it up). I am worrying that it's not humid enough and was going to put a wet towel in. I am scared about the whole "helping" thing. I was over the moon that I even got two. I just don't want to abort the one that is rocking in the water! I don't want to be too much of a pain to the teacher since she was nice enough to let "crash" her incubator in the first place.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!!
