    Can anyone recommend a good hygrometer? The one I have isn't working properly.

    I ended up throwing all the eggs out, checked them and nothing developed, correct me if I'm wrong but even at day 5 there should be some signs like veins? I wonder if they were infertile, old, porous or a combination of all three.
    She is offering to send me more eggs, but I'm honestly not sure I want them!

    I do not toss eggs until day 10. I move them into groups on day 7, the first day to check air cell development.

    I move obvious good ones to one place and them move most likely clears to another. In between go ones that could go either way.

    Of course this is more of a problem with dark brown or green eggs.

    I would suggest opening up each egg and look for the ovum. You might just be surprised at what you find.

    I did open up each egg, they were all runny, light yellow and no development that I could see. Looked like a runnier version of a fresh egg when you crack it. A lot of the eggs were also porous, and I had one that was rotten and oozing that I threw out yesterday.

    Is she offering the others for free, including the shipping..for free? If so, it wouldn't hurt to try again. FREE! ??

    Sorry abut the others, I have had this happen, only about twice in my time of buying shipped eggs. None fertile, or started. Pretty upsetting. :(

    Thanks so very very much! that would be awesome, showing how to sammy the pulley together, and what size spindle and shaft assembly would be great too because when I looked there were so many options I get so confused!
