    Thanks, but I'm not hopeful... I think it's the only one out of 48 that the Janoel didn't kill. Seems like it had a massive temp spike that went unnoticed for a few days.

    Well, I have 3 in the brooder, one almost completely unzipped and one more pipped. I found one DIS this morning; it had pipped on the underside, made quite a sizable hole, but seems like maybe it broke through the inner membrane too soon? I am seeing veins and blood. I took it out and talked to it, no signs of life. The tip of the beak is protruding but no signs of life.
    I may try candling the non starters. Thanks!
    I think I may have played my chick music too soon...

    Well, I candled the non starters. Two I would say are dead with no internal pip. I left them in in case I'm wrong. The one that has a very small pip is moving lots, and 2 are maybe not pipped internally yet? Trying to stay out of the bator for a while. I got rid of the DIS egg.
    While I would have liked for every single egg to have hatched, the ones that have so far seem very strong and healthy. So, success.

    Well, that just sucks!

    That's good. Nothing like a strong healthy chick!

    It's out of the shell. Yolk 100% absorbed and no bleeding, but it was so sticky that I guess it inhaled some of that goo and now it has goo coming out of it's nares. Prognosis is poor, but I'll try my best.

    Let me start with, I love my husband. And, I love that he's a truck driver and is gone for months at a time. He was home this weekend...... My loving man noticed the temp gauge on the bator was reading a bit low and turned it up before bed. I woke up th the eggs at 104°.....ahhhhhhhhh!! We had a nice long talk about bator gauges and my thermometers and how he's NEVER ALLOWED TO TOUCH THE INCUBATOR EVER AGAIN.
    So, I'll give the eggs a week and see if any will develop.

    Oh no!! Good luck. Will it take sips of warm water to try to flush the nares??
