    Its my first time and only 5 out of 20 eggs hatched. Today was day 26 and there were 5 eggs left in the incubator that we thought might have a chance of being alive. We used the float test and they looked dead so we threw them away. we cracked them open though and only one looked develpoed but it was dead. [​IMG]

    Happens to the best of us...what were you incubating in? I put 48 eggs in a few months ago and only hatched 2 chicks [​IMG] stopped incubating for awhile but just got the bator out again today now that Im ready to try again....Just keep incubating, its the only way you will ever get better!

    I'm sorry all of you have had bad hatches. I hope the next one goes better for all of you! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have 40 on lockdown right now and have a modest hope of hatching at least 4. [​IMG]
