    Have four in the big incubator and today was lock down for them so had to take out the other five because they don`t hatch untill next week.They still need to be turned and the humidity would have been to high for them.They were accident eggs,I forgot to check under my silkie broodies out in the coop and when I did she had five extra eggs so I brought them in and they all looked fertile so thats why they are in the tiny[​IMG] yellow home.

    I had given it to a friend and some fertile eggs and none hatched,I only have used it for emergency`s,last year one of my silkies hatched out a few and then left the rest of the eggs and one a pipped,so I brought them in and put them in and the one that pipped did hatch.And another time I put one in that was left in the nest and that hatched,I have never tried the 21 days with it for myself.

    Thats why I have it sitting on top of the big incubator,I can`t keep the temp up in it,I did put aluminum foil around half of it and that seems to work

    We have the yellow bator as well as a couple homemade ones. I use foil around the base of the yellow one to keep the heat even and keep it on my desk in a moderatly cold room. Hoping eventually I'll hatch something from it!

    Can I ask where you have them placed in the house? Because of the drapery, I wonder if they are placed near a window?
