I am so disappointed. It has been 21 days since I started my first incubating experience. I monitored the temperature very carefully but while I had water in the bottom, was not able to monitor the humidity. After many attempts and failures at candeling, I was finally able to "see" veins and even movement in the white eggs. I was never that lucky with the brown eggs (just couldn't see anything but dark and light areas). I did add water on the 18th day and left everything alone. Today, still nothing. So...I did something, I should not have done..I opened the incubator up and took one of the brown eggs out, and cracked it open. (I was praying that I wasn't killing a chicken). Their was an obvious embryo inside but smaller than, perhaps a fingernail. Their was also some red blood in the shell but I am not sure if it was a blood ring. I don't know what to do now, because obviously I did do something wrong and that poor little thing didn't make it. How many more did I do that to? Do I wait a couple days? At the end of that time, do I open all the shells only to find the same? I feel horrible. What do I do differently next time, other than purchasing something to monitor the humidity?
