    Ok so today is like day 24 and I have 6 eggs left that didn't hatch. So we've been gone all day and I left the bator on but let it go dry. BIG MISTAKE!!! Came home tonight and checked it to find a zipped egg with the membrane still intact and very rubbery. Chick already dead. That'll teach me to give up hope too soon, huh!!

    Just opened up the rest of the eggs. Had several that had developed but not hatched. I will blame that on my ancient incubator and temp spikes. [​IMG] By the way, pewwwwww!!! [​IMG]

    Think I'll order a new bator right now!![​IMG]
