Hi, All. I've not been on the message board lately because playing with chicks is more fun than writing about them! Here's our final count - 8 beautiful chicks - 3 black and white, 5 yellow. Four of our eggs were yolks and 6 more had partially developed chicks in the eggs. After 24 days I candled and knew the four were "duds." I made sure I threw them a small distance from me in the field in case they were stinky, but they were not. Then I took two more out; these were nearly complete chicks with incomplete absorptions of the yolks. I finally shut down the incubator this morning and sadly took the last two to the field. One had I'd say a 10 day old chick and one a 14 day old chick inside. This was very sad for me; I'd like to know what stopped their development. All I can think of is that when I turned them I turned them on their equatorial axis and not their polar ones. I learned about this 1/2 way through incubating. I think I could be more careful about turning them when I was candling too. Live and Learn. Well, I'm on to the "raising chicks" topic board! Thanks for a fun experience. Ann P.S. - My sill Kodak camera now says it doesn't even detect my device let alone my photos. I have uninstalled and reinstalled my software too. I'll try again. Could be the cable - but it's brand new! Rats!
