I'm sure experience helps alot, but in my experience some are alittle slow/late and come out on their own just fine, and others never make it out of the shell, and so far I haven't been able to figure out how to know the difference (until it's to late). So anyway I have 7 eggs in my bator, all looked good on day 18, yesterday was day 21. Up to that point I'd seen nothing, so I checked them over, still nothing from 4 of them, but I could see movement in two and hear chirping in the other one. This morning still nothing, and nothing at noon, so I checked them again, at first nothing, but then I heard light chirping with one, light crunching with one, and very active crunching with the third (still nothing w/ the other 4). I know I can be paranoid, but it just really sucks to get this far and lose them. I had one once that was on day 23, I was actually getting ready to give up and picked each up and to my suprise heard some crunching (this was at midnight), two hours later I heard loud chirping! I was so excited, thought I'd have a fluffy chick the next morning. Went to bed, got up at 8am (6 hours later), heard nothing, saw nothing, opened the egg and the chick was dead! I think I made a mistake, I have two incubators so that I could use one as a hatcher, a LG and a Havabator, the LG has given me nothing but trouble. I had eggs with two different hatch dates in my Havabator these first ones were due yesterday and the next are due a week from Sat., so I moved the first ones over 4 days ago, everything was set up and looked fine, but then the temps started flucuating some, didn't seem to bad, but I'm starting to think bad enough to damage my eggs. So what would you do? I was considering pipping the eggs for them, I know these three have already pipped internally, so I hoped this might keep them from sufficating. So what are your thoughts? Am I being over eager?
