Lol , I thought it was the opposite. Luckily I had some of my mixed eggs in there. Lock down 2 days ago and they are hatching nicely.
What's the difference between feathers legs and not. I'm getting both. I really don't mind, I just want colorful eggs when collecting. Yet it's good to know.
I agree with the posters above. I have read many people that say you need a higher humidity, and that may work for some people, but lower works better for me. All of my breeds except the marans hatch well at 38-40% humidity. I tried the marans first at that, and had a lot of fully developed, but unhatched chicks. I dropped to 28-30%, even running dry in the summer, and started getting an 85% hatch rate. No one number is the gospel for everyone, but that is what works for me.
It depends on your ambient humidity. I live in the very dry desert so I set my humidity at 65% for the entire hatch. I get 100% hatch rates using my bird's eggs. I use a GQF Sportsman incubator. You have to take into account your location, as humidity varies, type of incubator, still air or fan, etc.
