    phesant hatching egg question

    When should I candle the eggs for the first time? I've hatched chickens before and usually do it on day 7 for the first time, but since it takes phesants longer to hatch, should I wait 10-11 days?

    This will be my first time trying to incubate phesant eggs, any tips for a successful hatch. I have been told to keep my temp at 100 F in a forced air incubator but what should my humidity be?

I have 2 digital thermometers in my incubator that show the temp and humidity, my question is are these showing wet bulb humidity or the relative humidity? Here is a pic of the...

    Help please! What is wrong with these chicks that didn't hatch? PICS

    walkswithdog See thats the thing, when I opened them they were actually still alive! They moved a little and died within the 1st 5 minutes. So they were not already dead or been dead for days. Thats what makes it really wierd to me, and I thought maybe it was a disease or bacteria or something.

    Help please! What is wrong with these chicks that didn't hatch? PICS

    I understand about them having a yolk sac still and dying before hatch, or right after piping. I just don't understand why it is that dark nasty green color, i have never seen that before. The yolh is normally yellow to a orange color, not green.

    Help please! What is wrong with these chicks that didn't hatch? PICS

    In the 1st and 3rd pics there is even more yolk under the chick you can't see. The 1st and 3rd pic is 1 chick, and the 2nd pic is another one. When I candled the eggs I did not see any movement, but when I opened them up both chicks were actually still alive and died shortly after. So I don't...
