    Im on day 20 and day 18 with some cuckoo maran eggs in the incubator. I am hoping they hatch. I started out with about 25 eggs, now I only have about 8 that actually was developing. Not starting out to a good hatch. But if only a few hatch I will still be happy. When I candle I see some feet moving on 2 of the eggs, the others I dont see nothing but a black mass. No peeps or anything yet. [​IMG] I am getting worried! I hope when I get home from work tommorrow I will have some pips atleast. My temp is stable at 101 and my humidity is staying around 65. Ive spent a lot of money on these eggs from a well known breeder, I dont wanna go wrong.

    I wish you luck. Don't give up on any eggs just yet. Before you throw any out, put it to your ear to see if you can hear peeping or scratching going on. At this late stage, it is very hard to see anything in the eggs. So good luck again. [​IMG] [​IMG]
