    Today is day 10, I candled them and got 22/25 fetile and 1 blood ring. Some of the eggs look like they may have stoped developing but I am leaving them in just in case but most look right on track. So I now have 21 growing babies in the bator. This is the most I have ever had make it to day 10. I love my octagon.

    The top of the incubator was off for all of 15(ish) minutes, do think this will affect the hatch?

    It took longer than I had wanted cause mid candling I smooshed one and I had to do an emergency egg removal and bator clean out. Some of the yoke got into the water will this harm the eggs?

    I am so excited! [​IMG]

    No a hen gets up off the eggs to go eat so you should be fine.

    yeah,, its pretty common for a hen to get off to eat and such for 10 to 15 minutes, I have watched my serama mommas [​IMG] the egg yolk will not hurt either.. I had an egg explode in the bator once.. took me 10 minutes to clean it out.. did not hurt the chickies at all [​IMG] it exploded when I touched it to take it out.. could smell it from FAR away.. HAHA
