Well, my first attempt at incubating eggs was a wash. None made it. My last little survivor tried valiantly but he too succumbed. He was a NN cross that when I pulled him out to see why he died was indeed a NN x with no feathers But I learned alot. None of them at 24 days has asorbed the yolk. I guess thats from too low temps. I kept the incubator at 99.5 for the first 14 days as stated on the package when later I learned it should have been much higher for a still air incbator. So this time I am gonna get the fan for my incubator and a real good quality thermometer/hydrometer. Hopefully things will go better next time. I have a question. When you have few eggs in the turners (I had 17) do you want to space them out or keep them clustered up? Should you put them over the water well or keep them on the outside of the waterwell? Will bumping the incubator bother chicks. (my cat jumped on it once) Thanks for helping my next go round be more successful.
