    I had ordered 6 rare Ayam Cemani CHICKEN eggs online and after letting them settle for 24 hours and running the

    incubator, I put them in. The temperature stayed at 99.5 with barely a couple spikes, but not bad and long enough to

    do anything. I'm using the dry incubation method which gives very high hatch rates, so the humidity is around 40-50.

    I candled on day 5 and not even one egg had veins or visible development. Same with day 7, and 10 and day 17...

    On day 18 I was supposed to stop turning the eggs but unfortunatly, I couldn't turn them until day 21... So I stopped

    the turner and left the eggs in the turner since they had gotten into their hatching positions like that (hopefully).

    Still, none hatched. A week went by and STILL nothing!!! But on day 28 I candled them and I saw development! 2 out

    of 6 eggs were clear. The other 4 had visible changes! 3 of them now have veins developing and an embryo and I

    even saw movement. And the other chick looks very big like it could hatch anytime... I'm just worried they died at some

    point though... I'm wondering if I should gently open the egg that has the big chick inside and see if it's alive and I can

    help it. Should I? I never saw development or even veins until around day 28!!! Everything's the same, same flashlight

    same room, same everything! The development is continuing, each time I candle I see change!? It is day 32 and today

    that one egg with the chick in it looks bigger and ready to come out...??? HELP!

    What should I do???

    Was this a joke? Were they mutant space chickens maybe? I always thought forced air incubation gave the best yield? How the hell could they not start developing until day 21?? :duc
