    Ok so I did this thing and the egg cracked and a fetus came out. I am surprised because its day 23 and a fetus came out. During candling this egg looked much different then my other and when the fetus came out it was in ugly yellow water. It was weird. I'm leaving the other alone because I think my problem was they developed late. Also this egg wobbles more than the fetus one did. I raised the humidity a lot since this. It's my last egg and I want it to live. Anything I should do. The temperature and humidity are fine for all I know.
     

  2. I'm no expert but they sound they they stopped developing the yellow water sounded like bacteria maybe.

    Its day 23? Usually it isnt much over 21 days and they hatch. Have any hatched at all for you ? It sounds like there was too much humidity if there was water in there?

    None have hatched at all. I'm hoping my last one does. I'm going to try to turn the humidity down. Thnx for your help!

    They should have at least pipped by now. If the humidity is to high they will drown. check for pips without lifting the lid and if there are none then the last little one is going to dead too. [​IMG]
