    Well,i just lost another hatch the second in a rowrow.The ist was power failure the night before. This time someone unplugged the turner,dont know how long it was unplugged. A week ago they were all kicking.Theres 2 or 3 that look half empty but some have movement. no turning would do that ,right?Temperature and humity was perfect the whole time.

    How far along in incubation are you? Not turning would more likely cause developmental problems rather than compromise a whole hatch, especially if it wasn't off for the entire incubation.

    I found out that I have messed up big time.The eggs were mixed up,a lot of different dates,i figured the hatch on the # written on eggs,which my daughter did,may have used last years callender.I probally got rid of a lot of good ones,most of them, cause I had them marked to hatch 3 days before.I did find about 8 with chicks in them and saved them.I should have left them all in.Things have been hard because I have been in hospital 4 times in last 6 to 8 weeks,have been to sick to get up.I will never let different eggs get mixed up again.I also have another gennis coming today.That would not have happened if I hadn't been in hospital the whole time.I had just got home the day I discarded them.I did get to see a little beak moving around last night.I have another batch to load now.Thats theonly time ive messedup lke that.I got the calander and counted days 100 times.Just didn't realize the different dates.My grandson and daughter had been doing it while I was in hospital[​IMG]Two I kept, I have been hatching them for my daughter.
