Good Morning everyone,
well 1 baby is still shell bound and I can't examine the last 3 eggs yet to see if they are pipped, the babies have been moved to the brooder, way too cramped in there and they were rolling the other eggs every where, including the 1 trying to hatch, it was upside down this morning , seems fine for the scramble though, at least seems to be breathing. Now that I took out shells and babies my temp, doesn't want to come back to 99.3 like it was at before..........is that normal? should I turn it up a bit to make up for the extra heat lost when others were removed?
The humidity is still pretty high and dewy looking in there,
Why didn't anyone warn me that the bator takes on a smell of it's own after hatch............?? yucky and messy in there, they certainly do make a mess at there coming out party as stated by someone yesterday LOL
So how long should I let those last 3 eggs go before candling them to see if they are alive? today is day the 23rd day.
so I will get better pictures later, I'm just trying to get them to eat or drink something, but will do a good once over later and take some close ups, these are not so good through the cover wire, but they are cute none the less, looks like 2 have the EE muffs
