    Hi I'm at day 25 with my incubated runner eggs and not sure if they are developing correctly. One looks ok but the other one doesn't look right.[​IMG][/IMG]

    Sorry I think the top one (red streak) is dead... but the bottom one looks good. Whats your temp and humidity?

    Hi thanks for the reply temp is 37.5 and humidity is 55%. I should of wrote that the first pic is still alive and moving but it looks small and only covering half of the egg it's very strange. I tried to hatch some chickens with no luck 2 fertile and both died at different stages, so I then put 2 of my runner eggs in the incubator. Thanks

    Temp should be 99.5 and try to boost the humidity to 70. Place egg over the water channel. Do this and step away from the incubator you are in LOCKDOWN! Do not open the incubator anymore unless to keep the humidity up, but do it quickly! They should start to hatch on the 28 ish day.
