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

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.

 

Okay, now that I see your comment, not sure I should have asked about, well you know....?? diameter.

And I saw a comment about sanding lines from air cell to pointy end, kinda like when you half peel a cucumber lengthwise. Said that made them easier to candle, and lose moisture better. I think it would be worth an experiment! Lol
Peg is impossible to not adore!!

:/ I didn't do that  just knocked of some color over the air cell end with a scotchbrite pad. But I washed them all this time and put a little bleach and hydrogen peroxide in the egg wash mix . Well see if they hatch . Bound to get a few I set 186  about 50 of those were Marans eggs.  I got chickens I don't even know what they are but there are only 4 chickens out there I didn't hatch.  Not only do I not know what they are I don't know how many there are . :lau

Do you know anything about using a heating pad in a brooder instead of lights?

Personally I prefer to use actual heat plate brooders as I just feel more comfortable with them, but that's a personal preference. The chicks love them.
