So this lil dark one here which is in the middle of the left is so filled with mass from what i can see im sure there is life but is suuuper dark egg o.o fiancée declares if it hatches its name has to be THE DARK ONE o.o i cant change her mind i told her it sounds like voldemort and she says YES!!! What im i gonna do o.o i prefered stormagendan dark lord of all o.o from that doctor who episode
I love the name! ;) It’s hilarious do you know what the mutation might be because it’d be ironic if it was a white! Lol

Welp top right bug dark one candled it just now and saw what i thought wqs yoke moving around turn out it was here are pics zoomed in on what i think is the sperm point on day two 🤔 were the white spot expands but then died due to shipping or gathering stored from seller idk just a guess it seemed a bit too big anyways so maybe it was just a slightly big one who gave out on day two we stipp have TheDarkOne in there down to 8 eggs though i think 5-6 might be duds then again 🤔 idk if any will hatch this round

Do you think excessive candling could have contributed you your poor hatch rate last time? Button eggs cool down so fast once you open the incubator, and handling them a lot could introduce bacteria.

It seems like you're candling most days now—perhaps it's safest to candle once or twice at most over the incubation? You might end up with more hatching if you leave them alone. Fingers crossed for your remaining eggs!

I was trying to get temp back up cuz it was down so while i was doing so and adjusting humidity i checked on the big dark one that i already suspected not being good o.o those pics of them outside the incubator are the same couple pics i just edit or draw on them and maybe last batch maybe but not for this one since i didnt candle till day 9 or open the incubator and temps and stuff were all good the whole time ^^/

Today is day 14 :wee humidity and temp on lock down have been perfect learned a new Q tip 🙃 technique which i slowly tried and learned in the last week which i got the idea from @Nabiki With her i think its spelled pipette or something to drop water on the paper towels to help quickly or slightly raise humidity 🤔 so o.o wet q tip dropped into water bottle cap which is were i put the water anyways i use a straw for bigger then a drop of water or two amounts of water so i don't have to open the lid to add but i have a couple pics nothing exciting but the lock down part is to me :popgot me a book cleared for the next two days to watch eggs now its "relax" time (panic and worries a baby hatches constantly checking temps and humidity lmao) :lau

So since snow went with me just about everywhere even car rides which she loved looking at all the new things i been thinking of a safe way to take the new quail on trips these are my two fave so far what do u all think o.o im leaning towards the pokemon one since they could hide if they wanna hide but also stick there head out of one of the three holes to look around when they want
