I just hatched out 8 chicks, plus one pipped but died. I have a homemade bator, so the temps were probably lower than normal, plus the humidity problem that seems to plague me! We also will not mention how often I forgot to turn them! AND my light bulb burnt out, so they got down to 78 for who knows how long! I know, its a miracle anything hatches here at all! I FINALLY got a real incubator (LG forced air WITH a turner! ) so I am hoping the next batch is better. I moved the eggs to the LG on day 18, humidity has fluctuted a bit in there too. Today is Day 22, I don't hear any more cheaping in there, how long should I give the rest of the eggs? There are still a LOT of eggs in there! I really don't want to repeat last hatch, where when I was cleaning out the bator two of the eggs were still alive, although they did not live long after that! How long does everyone wait? I have more in the homemade bator waiting to move over, plus more eggs on the way for Monday! I think I need another incubator!
