Hi all, I have a home made incubator and am trying to hatch 6 eggs. I need answers to a couple of questions: 1. Before you go on lockdown, do you place anything over the hardware cloth. I have this vision of chick legs falling through the hardward cloth or am I crazy? 2. Can anyone show me a picture of a 10 or 11 day old picture that is not good. I really see something in each egg, although I know they can't all be good. 3. I have the eggs in a carton, will the chicks fall out onto the hardware cloth if I leave them there? Will they hurt themselves? 4. Can the eggs touch if I take them and lay them on the hardware cloth. Mine has a slight dip in the center so I think they will probably roll toward each other. Sorry for all the questions, but I am getting nervous the closer I get. I have the ability to bring life into the world and the eggs are depending on me. Can you tell I never had children? Thanks to all 5. When will the eggs start stinking if they are bad, so far every one of them smell good.
