NAVELS She HATCHED! But what's with her butt? post #25012
hope she is ok!
@Sally SunshineWhoa! That's a whole lot of information I didn't even think to look up. Funny thing is that was my 5th clutch of CCL's at the same temps and RH's, but the 1st time having that bad of a hatch rate, and the last 2 had no losses, I believe. I totally believe you and promptly got up after reading this and went and adjusted the temp and RH in the new Brinsea that's holding the next CCL's and BBCM's. I'm afraid maybe my old Brinsea bator is dying, hence the bad hatch. It's so old they don't sell parts for anymore. The new clutch waiting to hatch are eggs I had shipped from OK, and once again, my box was beat up, and the inside of the eggs show it. I was expecting a maximum hatch rate of 50%, so I'm happy with my 16 out of 28 so far. As for calibrating, I have no idea how to do it, but I expected Brinsea to have done it at the factory. I'm sure I was wrong again!
oh no! do you think its temps is adjusting on you>? perhaps eves? that stinks they are so expensive to buy! you know I swear by my wafer thermostat cooler bators! lol
I cant help with this, not sure if ducks can raise turkey, and they take longer than chicken so pick one or other is my guess?
