    Ok so the temps throughout the whole hatch have been a even 100 degrees and I have a 1588 genisis hova bator.....and also the humidity has been 50%-55% and now of course I set them all for the next 3 days and the humididty is 65%.

    I wonder what is going on? These can't be 19 day old chicks..can they?

    what do you all think?

    Sometimes they go earlier than we count. Were they shipped eggs? i have had the hatch earlier than 21 on shipped eggs.

    It maybe the eggs are on a different schedule than you!!
     
  6. i wouldn't fret. i've had chicks pip on day 19 and hatch on day 20. They're just eager to get out, and are generally the healthiest of the bunch.

    I just had a day 19 hatch- and 8 more pipping & wobbling. My temps were at 99 the whole time.These are mostly banties- but I have a RIR that pipped today too. Must be a good moon to be born under.[​IMG]

    Ohh good! This makes me feel good about them. This incubator is turning out to be so far the best. Lets see how many hatch! [​IMG]

    I have lots of eggs hatching from EE's and Millies and one BCM(this is the one that is pipped) and show quality RIR(really looking forward to them!)

    Now I am gonna have to wait....glad I am at work or I would be staring in the incubator as we speak. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ok hopefully that incubator will be full by Saturday(day 21!)

  9. Good luck! Everytime I incubate there is always one little roo that comes out on day 19 and the rest day 21. Go figure.
