This is why i do not like NOT being home for stuff. I saw pips this morning but i have to go to work. I left at 6am i get home at 8. Well 1 hatched. Then 2 more were zipping my kids at home sent me a pic. I see the hygrometer is at 45% i called her told her to add some wayer through the syringe i have set up through the vent with iv tubing .she said its at 71% does it still need water. I said no , but why the difference? She opened it to get the shell out and to get the chick unstuck from the carton
OMG by this time my grandson who was watching and is almost 8 thought he would help by doing what ... putting the water in the syringe in the trough for her. So she calls me tells me the humidity is at 99% "is that okay?"...
omg.... now i have 3 hatchlings none are dried my cartons that were holding the eggs upright are wet! Wet wet
so at 99% and there is condesation on the lid i very quickly removed the eggs from the carton laid them down replaced the lid. Then i took the syringe and pulled water out through my tubing. My humidity is now at 88% still to high just hoping its okay. Lots of pips going on.
One chick wont open its eyes not sure if they are stuck or what it is also maybe squishy? Kind of bloated looking has wet poo stuck to its bottom but is moving around the bator climbing all over the other eggs.
Any advice?Edited by sasafras4u2 - 5/7/16 at 8:06pm
