    Please send good hatching vibes to my only two Wheaton Marans eggs out of 10, that looked like they have developed. I left some of the others in anyway since they don't stink but there are several(More than half) with floating airsacs and only look to be half developed or scrambled, can't really tell too dark. If these two don't hatch I am giving up until I have a broody next spring. Getting too expensive, this is my second try. Followed the recommendations I was given this time to a tee and only one spike...Don't know if it was from the weather or what but it just spiked one day and not anymore. Was hoping for more but I guess the PO wasn't as careful as I thought(airsacs) and three I had already thrown out were scrambled when I opened them.

    So far this is the worse incubation I have had too! I had 15 eggs and only 4 are living or developed. One died in egg...the rest had broken air cells and did not develop I think between the hot weather and the PO they were damaged [​IMG] Good luck to you! I hope the two you have hatch! [​IMG]
