    This is my first time incubating eggs. I ordered 10 black australorp and silver laced wyandotte eggs from meyer hatchery. One came to us broken so we tossed it and the other came to us with a chip... but we decided to give it a chance and it developed normally. But now its day 19 and i removed them from the egg turner and raised the humidity. I am using a hovabator model 1602N with an automatic egg turner. I staggered some eggs from my own chickens.. stupidly :( so i have around 9 more eggs in there due to hatch a couple days after the australorps and wyandottes. The other eggs are silkie eggs. Should i be worried that my australorps and wyandottes are not moving around yet?

    You are annoying me too! lol, day 19 can be a quiet time for egg hatching. have patience, don't worry until day 22. besides even if you wanted to pop them at day 19 thaye would not make it. I have eggs on day 19 too, but I am not really expecting them to hatch til day 22.

    101 would be okay for a still air, but anything brief won't kill anyone.

    101.5 is nothing to worry about. That isn't high at all.

    not with still air, but maybe if it was temp all the way through setting- I know 105 is.

    IDK, Mine went to 105. something for a bit (unknown if it was 1 hour or 6 hours) and I have 3 eggs that were peeping last night. 5 have little peck holes. I am so excited! I am at day 19. ALTHOUGH I admit I do not know how many of the 42 eggs I have are good and fear these ones will not make it.... Just because this is my first time.
