Hi I have just joined the site and I am actually looking for some help with incubating. I have one RIR roo and seven RIR hens as well as two Australian Australorp hens. I just went thru a full cycle (now day 24) and out of 12 eggs only 1 actually made it out healthy. Five looked good at day 18 before lockdown but show no sign of pip or movement for over 48 hours. I followed the advice found on this site as best I could but not sure what I did wrong. Any ideas?

:welcome  Did you calibrate your thermometer and humidity sensors?

Hi and welcome to BYC. Sorry, i have no experience in using incubators, but you may wish to consider posting your question on the "incubating and hatching eggs" forum. 

 

Best wishes

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

The thermometer and humidity sensors are built in and I monitored them very close. I can say that one looked "shrink wrapped", a couple looked to be full of water but the air sacs looked small in all. Hope this helps
