In the Brooder
- Mar 25, 2015
and 4 out of my 6 that didnt hatch (1 chick hatched) looked like they were hard boiled!!! My temps were never higher then 101 mostly 100 on 4 different thermometers! I dont know what went wrong. I turned them 3-5 times a day. I have 2 fans in the incubator to keep air moving so to cut down on the chance of hot spots. My humidity was a little hard to control but I kept it above 30% until lockdown. Im wondering if Im having such an issue with getting eggs to hatch from some unknown issue with my incubator?!? I set 6 more eggs 9 days ago and it looks like all of them are not developing too. Im ready to throw the hat in and stop trying to hatch chicks. I did so much research and thought I knew somewhat what I was doing but obviously I dont. Im just doing this for my daughter to see so its not like I need to do this. I just want too because of all the money I put into this already. We had one successful chick hatch so maybe thats enough :/ Im so upset and frustrated now.
