HELP!! Twin embryos in a Blue Silkie egg - Page 2
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Day 14 of incubation of the Blue Silkie twin embryos. Very hard to Candle now. Dark where the chicks are and light where the yolks are, you can still see some veins and a little movement, so at least one is still alive.
I have decreased the humidity in the incubator. I have been at about 40 to 55 percent for the first 14 days, but hope less humidity 20 to 30 percent will give them a little more room and thin them out for the next 5 days. Any thoughts on this?? I am also thinking about keeping them rotating through day 20 since they will not be able to rotate themselves into a rotating pipping position. Thanks for any comments or suggestions!
Hope all goes well with the hatch, could you imagine how small and adorable those twins will be?
Im super interested in this hatch:) I would assume a batroom with a hot shower on would do the trick when the time comes:)
First off thanks for all the support!! I am finding that since most double yolkers are culled therefore very little information on how to get these two little guys out, let alone out alive. As "silkies4penney" suggests, I'm planing on the bathroom with the shower running and a 100w red heat lamp over the area I am working in. It is day 15 and I have decided to run the incubator almost dry now 20 to 30 percent humidity for the next 3 days, as the incubator instructions advise low is better than high during the first 18 days. I am hoping for less moisture in the egg so less crowding, what do you guys think?
