Hello all.....So, I put 21 eggs in the still air incubator on Sunday for the first time ever!! So far, I have maintained a steady 99.6 temp and averaging 45%-50% humidity. I've researched a TON and there is still LOTS to learn. I do not have an automatic turner yet, so I have been turning them 4-5 times a day, including 1 time during the night. For some reason, I do not feel very lucky about this hatch. Maybe I'm just paranoid, I don't know. But, I would be happy with just 3 or 4 little chickies. I certainly don't need all 21 to hatch, and only used that many to increase my odds, as I know they don't all make it. I have already dropped and busted 1, trying to candle it, so that brings me down to 20. I know I probably won't see anything this soon, but I can't manage to keep my eyes off them. It's crazy addictive!! Just the thought of seeing the little spider veins is so exciting!! Is there anything I need to pay close attention to? other than the temp, humidity, turning? Anything about the air sac? How can I tell if it's still attached? I'm sure I will have lots of questions as time go on. The hatch date is Dec.14, give or take. By the way, the eggs were from my Rhode Island Red rooster and White Leghorn hens, which makes a Tetra Tint. The same rooster with Golden Comet and Olive Egger hens. Also, I have 2 eggs that are from my Japanese Bantam rooster and EE hen that lays blue eggs. So, I can't wait to see if and what I get. Thanks for all your support!! I just hope it isn't a complete fail.
