i heard it can be done is there anyone out there that has done this with seccifully
Im afraid you've been misinformed. Freezing will cause the egg contents to expand and may cause cracking. Freezing embryos, ova and sperm is a scientific technique that requires strict controls, preparation and liquid nitrogen.
Not even worth considering trying as it'll simply waste the egg.
thank you i didnt think so just had to ask a dumb question to get the answer i all ready new. got a good question for you now. if i got a 3 tray bator and i put eggs in one tray that holds 8 dozen and run my temp at 99.5 and my rh at 50% and a week later do it again and the third tray week after that and at 18 days from the first being put in i bring my rh up to 70% how will that effect the eggs in my 2-3 trays of hatching eggs?
Hi - setting staggered hatches in the same incubator will cause an increased failure rate and there's no reason to increase humidity at Day 18. Your eggs set later will be at an incorrect humidity and thats a lot of eggs to take risks with if your trays hold eight dozen eggs.
pete55 you still there i just lost 20 dozen eggs is starting them at different weeks a bad thing
is 50% high enough i had a high rate of unhatched eggs and the few that did hatch had a problem with being stuck to the membram of the shell
If you've a different incubator for hatching then staggered hatches are no problems. When the eggs require a higher humidity nearer hatching then place them in the hatching incubator.
Am I reading your posts correctly as you stated you've just lost 20 dozen eggs - thats 240 eggs!!! What kind of eggs are they?
jersey black gaints, rhode inland reds,silver laced wyndots,polish, cochins,amercanuas,buff orfingtons,and minorcas
hello pete55 you still around?
Charlie, chicken eggs incubate completely different from waterfowl. Bests to move your question to the general incubation thread where those that do chicken eggs all of the time can help answer your questions.
