Hi all! I purchased eggs online and had 14 Porcelain D'Uccle's arrive to my home. I had the bator running for a week prior. Holding steady at 99.5 degrees. The eggs went in the bator and this Saturday (Nov 1) was the 21st day. No pipping! I had candled the eggs ever 5 days or so, to see if there was any life. Many of the eggs showed veins. Some I couldn't see really well because my light was a bit dim. I did find growth in all but 2 eggs. My husband decides on Saturday that the eggs were no good. This is our first bator experience. Hubby cracks open two eggs, nothing inside but yolk. Hubby cracks open a 3rd egg, which feels heavier than the previous two. BABY CHICK inside!!! Chick had part of its tummy still exposed, about the size of the end of your pinky finger. We figure chicks are not ready and leave the rest alone. We have 11 eggs left. 8 of them are really heavy. Three are not so heavy. The 8 heavy ones have turned a darker shade of brown. The three light ones are still off white in color. Has anyone EVER hatched a batch after day 23? Still no pipping and today is day 23. I don't know what to do. The baby he broke out of the shell had a heart beat and was not fully formed. I don't know what to do??!!?? Help if you have any info that might be of assistance please.
