    Alright I candled and took out the turner and I uped the humidity.

    Here is a recap:

    Day 10:

    Charlotte -

    All 6 eggs fertile
    1 egg had a blood ring

    Buff Brahma/blue orp -
    all 3 eggs fertile and growing

    Lt. Brahma/blue orp -
    as you know all non-developing

    Barred Rock -
    as you know all non-developing

    My flock -
    both eggs fertile and developing

    Day 18:

    Charlotte -
    1 egg undeveloped, I missed it in the first candling
    2 eggs look really good
    2 look somewhat iffy

    buff brahma/blue orp -
    2 devolping well
    1 is iffy and looks like it almost has two wir sacs one on each end

    My flock -
    both alive and visably moving

    I am just crossing my fingers now and hoping for the best.

    I do have one question though, my humidity drops very low at night is there any way I can keep it up without having to ad water in the middle of the night?

    Corey, the two airsac-looking egg- are they attached to each other, like scallopped looking? That will probably be fine, if so. I had a bunch of shipped eggs that appeared that way to hatch just fine.
    That is so odd that Lexie's didnt develop; must be the P.O. because hers are the ones that hatch when nothing else will. I have two in my bator on Day 14, both well-developed. When I send you the Orps next time, I'll send you more of hers too. Wish we'd all known about Miranda's problem early on. That's just the weirdest thing I've ever had happen with a hen.
    As far as your humidity dropping, you may just have to add some before you go to bed every night and hope for the best.

    Actually the "air-sacs" are completly seperate on either end of the egg. one looks like a normal air sac but the other is irregular and choppy looking. IDK I put it in the bater we'll just see if it hatches.

    The P.O. strikes again, LOL. Yeah, you have nothing to lose by leaving it in there. Hopefully, we'll be surprised and you'll have a fat, healthy chick pop out.
