LMAO... I could have sworn California.... oh well....
Here's the one that died....
mouth full of blood can't really tell in pic but it was really sad......
last two are the one that piped last night not going to candle again already did twice this is what it looks like moving a lot last night then did on a super quick check this morning just to make sure all was well no more movement this morning but was told that its resting to get ready for hatch which i believe.....does all look well?
Thanks again for all the help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A very big bummer. It tried so hard. Does is ever get easy to lose one??
I did every night when I turned the eggs. Well every night AFTER day 7. They were shipped and was afraid I would giggle the eggs before that.
It's very addicting
Well, I got the "school room" resituated so that I could set up the brooder. Now just adjusting the light for temps. (Yes, I still use the old brooder lights.) Water and food dishes cleaned and sterilized. Just have to figure out how to make the next couple of days go a tad faster...... I do have work out in the coops to do. A door needs it's hinges fixed, I want to build better nesting boxes. We're supposed to have 70F tomorrow, so hopefully some time outside working will make the day go faster.
I'm so sorry!
Oh, I didn't mean hatching them upright. I have to admit, I've never hatched in cartons. But I will set my shipped eggs in cartons and then lay them down flat when I see the air cells are firm. That's what I meant, that I would keep them in the cartons at least till then. I used to despise cartons and always be in a rush to get those eggs horizontal. But now I've come to learn and not dislike using the cartons day 1-18. And just like Friday said, all of that stuff about the eggs may very well be true but shipped eggs are in a league of their own. Once you do local, you're going to be like "really?!? Hatching is this easy"!
On my first batch of eggs ever, I literally could not stop candling! I would wake up and tell myself that I was not going to candle and I would cave in a few hours. Those were shipped too and I can't believe I managed to hatch them! Lol.
That is so sad. It doesn't even look like it broke through the membrane to internally pip. I'm going to be honest here, I don't like that red line on the two bottom eggs. Is that blood too? So they are internally pipped but when you candle them now you don't hear peeping? Even if they are resting when you candle them, they will peep at you. My advice would be to candle again, tap your finger nail on the air cell and if you don't hear peeping or the beak tapping at the shell (or see the beak moving in there) then I would make a hole and look.
I can't believe it's so close!! I know the odds are against me but I'm getting a little nervous that I'm locking down 2 whacked out duck eggs!
Thanks for clearing that up for me, @RubyNala97 I am old,and easily confused. So, how do Silkies do in winter? (I can't believe I just asked that!)
My four shabby pet quality silkies that are no where near as fluffy and pretty as her's did great through winter. You know you want to...... twist twist..... lol
OW OW OW.....You always hurt the ones you love, lalalalllllllala Caught you again, didn't I? Ruby, guess you better watch for a PM from me and some PayPal information. Ken just grinned at me and said, "Good thing you got other incubator disinfected and boxed back up again, ain't it?" Well, Pa....I haven't decided anything for sure yet.
It still hurts but it gets easier to accept that some just aren't meant to make it. Hang in there.
Good to hear, lol. It is addicting. All I'm seeing are veins right now. I can't wait till I see an embryo.
