    Well, of the dozen eggs I incubated, only three are developing.. unfortunately they're the biggest eggs, one is massive! Two eggs seem to be ok, and are completely filled with chick at day 13, but the biggest egg I see the peep floating in a lot of liquid still. I'm worried there will just be too much liquid inside the egg when hatch day rolls around. Any advice?

    I also realized this WHOLE TIME I was filling the wrong trough with water in my genesis model hova bator.. [​IMG] I was filling trough T not C!!! I hope that this means there was less humidity since it seems like C has more surface area? Ugh.
