My hatch is about over I set 36 eggs 24 were infertile So, I only had my 12 that I threw in for fun. I had 7 hatch out and another is Zipping I had 3 silkies in there but they died at day 16ish They were cute little black ones. If this one hatches out thats 8 out of 11 is that 80%? Thats my best hatch yet. I had a little test with these last 2 hatches my other was 21 eggs on day 18. 2 hatched, I helped one but they didn't thrive and both died. Out of 21 viable eggs pretty much 0%. My test was-- is a turner more important or a fan? My first hatch was 24% 33 eggs 19 at day 18- 8 hatched 1 died. still air hand turn Second hatch was 0% 32 eggs 21 at day 18- 2 hatched 2 died. Still air Auto Turn Third hatch was 80%? 36 eggs 11 at day 18- 7 hatched 0 died. Forced air hand turn I had them in 2 different incubators. I also tried the carton method on this last hatch. (which I decided is good for me) The results speak for themselves. I will be getting another new incubator sometime this season WITH a fan or be putting one in. I didn't realize it made such a difference. I've also learned the hard way, and decided to NEVER help a chick hach unless they say my name and ask for help! Pictures to come soon. Cause I know you're jealous!!
