I decided to do my first attempt at incubating a few chicken eggs. I used a Reptibator, which is actually meant for reptile eggs, but I figured it would still work. I set two eggs on the 17th, two eggs on the 18th, and three on the 20th. So today the first eggs should have started pipping, But I havnt seen anything. Through the incubation period I had a hard time keeping the humidity up, and admittedly missed a few times turning the eggs. All the eggs were definitely fertile and are just from my mothers own personal stock. The eggs are all dark brown, so its hard to see much, but i decided to candle the eggs today to see if I could see any movement. It appears to me that all the eggs developed about half way and died, as only half of each egg is dark. Does anyone of an example of what I fully developed egg should look like just before hatching? Im going to give the eggs about another week "just in case" but I dont expect to get any chicks. Im thinking it was probably to low of humidity. I had the temp at a steady 101 and the humidity fluctuated alot. Its a still air incubator. Thanks for any help.
