Ok so we're at day 15 here of incubating 15 eggs I'd purchased. I had the incubator from my son who had once tried to (unsuccessfuly I might add) hatch some duck eggs. Like the rest of the "chicken people" here I found myself somewhat anstie & so I was on this egg auction sight & they had the eggs of the chicks I'd just decided I was going to get next spring & well one thing lead to another & before I knew it I had eggs on the way here to me.... Don't you all hate when you find that just happens???? LOL Anyway I figured I'd just use this little bator I had sitting around & I'd sort of thought of this as all an experiment & if I get any hatches great & if not well it'll be a lesson to me.... Frankly when I'd purchased my buff Orpingtons last summer I did so because I heard they were a brooky chicken & I figured they'd do this part of it all for me.... I'm remember now why I'd made that decision as I came here tonight realizing I should have some kind of monitor in the incubator monitoring the humidity? I have had water in the little rut's or dishes supplied but I've not actually had a gage in there. I have candled the eggs & there is definitely something there in every egg & they were all fertile eggs. I've not really seen movement while candling or not like I see when we've watched the candling video's on youtube but then I didn't have them there too long because I didn't want to handle them too long or have them out of the incubator. I have been turning them 3 to 4 times a day & so I've got 6 days or so to see if anything is going to hatch. Do you all think there's a chance that I could still get a hatching from this? the temp in the incubator has been pretty steady on 100 & there is some kind of development I just don't think I'm see hearts pounding or swimming like on the videos I see. Just thought I'd check in with the groups here.
