Big day Arrived but no sign,how long should i leave eggs in before i assume they are no go's.
At least a couple days. How closely did you monitor the eggs during incubation? We're there any temperature dips/rises?
Yes unfortunately it did dip varying from 97.9 to 101 at one point.
I don't think those temps are too extreme. I'm waiting on my first broody and we're at 23 days. She started with 12 eggs and is now setting on an unbelievable 26 EGGS. Her coop mates continued to lay in her nest box. I'm not sure what to do. If nothing tonight when I get home from work, I'll have to figure where to go from her. Perhaps candle and start up an incubator.
Been told by fellow BYC member to leave 24HRS after hatch day and try floating them, not a hundred per cent knowing what ime looking for suppose will have to find more info.
