Well, I waited and waited and nothing hatched. Last night I decided to unplug the bator. This morning I opened all of the eggs up-so sad. The chicks were all growing up to about day 18-they looked like perfect little babies. My 2 remaining shipped eggs had stopped growing a while ago. It was cool to actually see chicks from my eggs, but I wish they were hatched and running around. I'm getting more eggs next week, and hopefully the upgrade to the hova genesis will help with a more successful hatch!

I am sorry. I lost my small hatch last week too. I have a bigger hatch due next week! Sometimes it takes a little to work the bugs out to get a good hatch. I hope you have better luck next time.

I've been there too. I've done two hatches and only got one bird, the lone survivor. Keep faith though. I just recieved some replacement eggs and my hovagenesis is being shipped today.

You are definitely not alone! My broody didn't hatch a single egg, and now she has this bothersome limp! The vet won't look at her until tomorrow.

I'm praying we will both be more successful next time.

Wow, that stinks, I'm so sorry. I wouldn't give up though. Its just too exciting to not do it again.

I have to ask, what type of incubator were you using? I wonder if its the same I am because I'm having some of the same experiences.

I'm sorry believe me I know what it is like. Don't give up though. alot of this is trial and error until you get a better bator but i know alot of people on here that have used the still incubators and have a lot of success.
