In the Brooder
- Dec 7, 2011
so I was told by a breeder that he only turns his eggs twice a day. So this set I decided to give it a whirl. The results were terrible. I have been setting egg from the same hens & roo for a while now but out of the 25 eggs I set only 6 appear to have chicks in! the rest started to develop but died about a week into incubation. I cant rule out power failure as my mum was turning the eggs while we were on vacation but Im baffeled as I normally get 75-90% hatch rate! anyone out there that does 2 turn incubation could that be the cause? any ideas? I usaually hatch 50-100 a month and have never had this happen before.
