    Did you get it all figured out, Pook? I had a hen reject an egg, several times, but it hatched in the end(although I had to warm it myself, in my hands, it was always cold to the touch, plus she pooped on it on day 20...and I had to wash it in the sink with warm water to get the poop off...now she is a fine poulet, that just started laying)

    Hope it went OK for you...
