I'm expecting a few chicks to hatch tomorrow 9/11. I''m using a Brower still air Incubator, the temperature has been steady between 99-103. Humidity has been between 35-45% (due to unusual thunderstorms in Colorado these past few weeks.) I've turned the eggs three times a day doing quarter turns each time. Today (day 20) I went to check on the eggs and noticed one had pipped on the OPPOSITE side of the egg. Immediately I checked to see if it was still alive... No signs from that little pip hole. So I candled it, still saw no movement. Upon realizing it had died earlier sometime this morning, I decided to perform an autopsy to see what had happened. As I carefully chipped away the egg shell and inner soft material, I noticed no blood however the yolk was completely unabsorbed. So I see two causes: 1. Pipped on the wrong end 2. Unabsorbed yolk I'd be really interested in hearing about your experiences and knowledge of why this may happen? Which issue was the cause of death do you think? Are chicks able to survive either issue? I just want to learn more! I quickly candled the others out of curiosity and one has already pipped the inner membrane.. Glad the next to hatch seems to not be repeating the same method.
