Got my Call eggs in from Ravyn today! As always, excellent packing and they are in great shape.

Does anyone know if a Brinsea autoturner is okay to use with them laying on their sides? It just slowly rocks the whole incubator back and forth. I would also give them a 180 degree turn by hand once or twice a day.

I candled eggs on the Incuview Saturday....apparently did not get the lid back on right. It was partially open on one side. I just found it. Ben 48ish hours... Reading was 75.4. Did a quick candled 2 are questionable the rest I don't know about. Put the lid back on correctly and just gonna keep my fingers crossed. fl.gif


It seems decent other than my human error hit.gif


And hopeful goose egg...giant double yolk Ancona duck egg. This definitely is not my evening.

I considered it, but decided to hand turn. Mainly because 23 eggs completely filled it. I'm not sure I could have gotten any rails in there to hold the eggs. Thought maybe when I removed clears that I would have some room..... But NO Clears!! lol.png

Oh no!! We'll hope they are ok!!

I have a broody that abandoned nest on day 14. Eggs got cold. Another girl sat on them for a day or so, but she was wandering around today too. So I'm going to candle them and decide what the heck to do with them. Incubators are full.

Except.... I guess I could experiment and put them in the cabinet thing and see what happens. Probably all be deformed.

that will be my luck. These guys were 4 to 5 days from hatch.

I would put them in the cabinet thing if its holding and give it a shot. Can't hurt

cool.   Wish I was able to do stuff like that...  There is a huge junk yard about six miles east of me that disassembles old travel Trailers.  so axels springs and chassis frames are available.
