    It's the 21st day of incubation and we have 15 eggs left to hatch. 4 have hatched early and none that are in the incubator now have pipped yet. Should I be worried? Please Help!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sometimes I have hatches that linger on for three days. Some parts of the incubator are warmer than other spots, so the chicks develop at different rates. Some people say don't throw the eggs away until day 25. Hang in there!

    Well the temperature is at about 101 or 102 degrees but it has been at 100 consistantly it must have just gone up a few
    and the both troughs have water because the instructions said to have that for the last three days! Sorry I'm new at this! [​IMG]

    also, is it bad if when an earlier chick hatched, before I moved it to the brooder, it ran into some eggs and turned them so they were on a different side?

    i like to leave the eggs in the turner that keeps the eggs from being moved by chicks running around.

    [​IMG] Do you know what your humidity is? Usually filling the troughs aren't adequate during lock down. I also put a sponge in to help bring up the humidity.
