I have some eggs in the hatcher and according to my wonderful documenting skills they were to hatch Monday. Monday came and nothing, Tuesday nothing, today at lunch I saw nothing. So I pulled an egg out of the hatcher to see why they died again and noticed a small crack. Didn't think anything of it. Pulled out my pocket knife and flicked off a very large part of the shell. The membrane was intact. All of a sudden the membrane started pushing and moving! I almost dropped the egg! I immediately put it back in the hatcher and added a wet washcloth to increase the humidity. Do you think it will make it? I never punctured the membrane and there was no blood or anything, just movement. If it lives this will be the first hatch for me this year. I had quail hatching and had a temp spike and cooked them all. Thankfully DH bought me a new bator. Hopefully i didn't compromise this little guy hatching. Lesson learned.... They are either late, or I didn't put the right date on the eggs....... Thanks for your thoughts on this, and please send good hatching vibes. These are silkies that I got from a member here and I really really want these beauties to hatch! I'm also using the egg carton method this go round.
