    We have a very simple RCOM incubator that holds 3 eggs. We set these on Aug 3rd and this is as far in development as they got. 1 was slightly less developed. Temp was 39 C and eggs are automatically turned. ANy advice? Would like to try again ASAP

    sorry you lost your babies. I have been tempted to hatch out small batches, but I will set 6 if I wanted 3 because you never know if you got a quitter or not. It may not be the hatcher, it might be the egg quality. I hope you have better luck next time.
