    Ok so I incidentally drowned them and they all died but there is hope for the next batch. My ventilation was crappy and it was way too humid so I am starting again in a couple of days after making some adjustments. But what should I do with the eggs. Should I just throw them into the woods and let the animals eat them? [​IMG]

    That's so sad. I would put them in the woods. It seems nicer that at least some good would come of it, even if it's just good for a random animal. Hope you have better luck next time!

    It sounds bad, but yes, with my chicks that don't make it I pitch them over the hill. Unless it happens to be trash day, then I just put them in the bag.

    I'm sorry yours didn't make it. [​IMG]

    Oh I am so sorry!

    Now that you know about your ventilation, I pray your next hatch goes well!

    Quote:Absolutely not. You are just creating predator problems for the future. Why should they hunt when you are providing all these nice tasty goodies with no effort. I hope those were not expensive eggs. For all newcomers to incubation practices it's better to practice on some inexpensive eggs until you have the technique down for your particular incubator.

    If one was moving there is a chance others might still be alive. Sometimes they are VERY still towards the end.

    And the lady that did our NPIP testing said a lot of people throw theirs in the woods and you shouldn't do that. She said to bury or throw away.
