    Hello! This is my 4th time incubating! I haven't hatched any though. :( They reach days 18, 19, and 20, then they die!! :hit

    Today i was getting rid of eggs and I almost through one away! I opened it up in the air sac area and saw no movement! Just then, the chick hit the air sac as if it were saying, "I'm right here!" So I rushed to put him/her back into the incubator, but i have it with the large end up! Is that ok?

    I hatch all eggs that way. Air sac/large end up in carton like racks.

    This is a pic of him/her! You can't really see the chick but it moves a little whenever I check up on him/her! Do you think it will make it?:confused: It's day 20 but I put this guy in a day late so day 19 for him/her.
