    HI all, I got a few questions,

    1. I am trying to hatch 3 batom eggs and after 2 weeks only 1 developed. The 1 is moving inside and the other 2 just have a dark spot inside with no viens, I believe the black spot is a yolk, but niether of the 2 have a bacteria ring, Should I toss the 2?

    2. When is a good time to stop turning them, I heard day 18 but does this sound right?

    3. also at day 18 turnt he humidity up to 70%, right?

    4. Once it hatches and after a hour or so to fluff up in the incubator, I can move it into a box, aquarium(thats empty of water), or a large laundrey basket with newspaper or woodchips on bottom and a heat lamp over it right?

    THanks for the help

    I would take the two that haven't developed out for sure, everything else sounds like you have it all down pat... good luck on hatch day![​IMG]
