So I went out and bought a couple of GQF 1266 incubators.......I ran one for at least 24hrs to make sure the temp was steady......I set 24 chick eggs and 7 turkey eggs on March 31......candled on April 14.....could see movement in all turkey eggs.....and could see movement in all of the chick eggs I checked.....didn't check but 7-8.....all were good.
The chicks started to pip on Thursday April 19....by friday evening I had 8 chicks......but no more. No movement, pipping, nothing. I cracked open 2-3 eggs last night April 22....and I had one almost fully mature but dead chick and 2 about half formed.
I watched the temp like a hawk.....keeping it at 100... I don't think anymore is going to hatch. I candled my turkey eggs last night and I didn't see any movement....I'm scared they are going to do the same thing......This has been very discouraging....especially on my very first hatching!! Not to mention all the money I have in the 2 incubators, eggs, and my wife wanted me to start on a 8x8 coop plus a run this weekend!! Doesn't look like I'm going to need any of that!
