In the Brooder
- Apr 15, 2014
I've been incubating 42 maran eggs. I am on day 18 and have taken the turner out and placed them on lockdown. I haven't been able to rely on candling due to the darkness of the eggs. I have smelt each egg and don't smell any fowl odors. I did have one temperature jump on day 16 and it went from 99.5 to 104. Other than that the temp has stayed at 99.5. I haven't heard any peeping and I'm just feeling discouraged. This was my first time incubating eggs and the kids have been excited since day one. Really hoping these lil guys show some signs of life soon.
