I had 16 eggs in my LG still air, first time I had ever tried to hatch. They were Cochin and Barred Rock eggs from my hens. I candled as the instruction book said that came with the bator, really didn't know what I was looking at. Anyway, I kept the temp at about 101 and the humidity stayed about 35%, thought I was okay. No one hatched. When on day 25 we decided to remove the eggs, my DH decided to do an eggtopsy. 50% of the eggs had deeloped chicks who never piped, the others had nothing, as I said I am not a real good candler and all of the eggs were brown so harder to see. One egg had "leaked" and I did not see it when I turned the eggs, how I don't know besides it was clear, so it must have happened just before I decided that we were done and had no babies to show for it. I bought 9 Auracana chicks at an auction, which are doing well so far, but I would like to hatch my own babies and I am now afraid, plus I am not sure of the best way to clean the bator to get it started again. Any suggestions on cleaning the mess would be appreciated. I am so trying to learn all that I can.
