    Hi, my eggs are on day 41 and still no wigglers, I had lots of issues with this incubator in the beguinning of the period, It went to a 100 almost and then dropped to 90s. There were no stinkers, and most of the eggs when tapped sounds half like china porcelain and others like full sound so Im kinda confused. Anyway theres only 9 days left but im anxiousssss!!!![​IMG]
    any help!

    egg tapping.. page 104 of the emu farmers handbook


    you can also try the temperature test.. take the eggs out of the bator and let them sit for about 4 to 5 minutes.. then feel the ends.. in an egg where there is a live chick the pointy end should still feel warm after a few minutes.. in a non fertile egg or one that has a dead chick it will feel cool to the touch

    I still wouldnt toss them yet if it were me.. but I like to give an egg every chance

    there is also a thread here on determining if an egg has a live chick or not.. you may want to check it out
