so . . . let's get this part out of the way. i'm a total dum dum. i know. i admit it. you don't have to tell me. moving right along . . . being the total hatchaholic that i am i put some of my own eggies in the bator five days ago. in this batch are some serama eggs (yea!) and also some mutt eggs from my "big little chicken" pen (a few seramas, a naked neck, a couple of silkies, a showgirl roo, and a beautiful cochin pair). sounds fine right? well, i THOUGHT these eggs were all relatively fresh and new - all laid within a couple of days of each other because i had collected eggs just a few days before. apparently i missed some along the way and someone has been sittin' on em. when i candled today (yup, i candled at day five, what can i say? i'm an impatient chicken mom) i found a whole spectrum of stages in development. everything from what you would think a five day old incubating chicken egg should look like to a few that are nearly packed full of chicken to the point that you can barely see what's going on in there!!!! (the serama eggs are all looking like they are around 5 days in, it's the mutt eggies that are much more variable). eeeeeeeeeeeeeek. now what do i do? i have the eggs in the R-Com and the eggs get turned randomly several times a day. i don't even know when i should stop turning the more developed eggs because i have no idea what day they are on. any advice/ideas regarding how i should procede? i'm thinking of turning off the turning function and hand turning all of the eggs so that i can look for pips over the next few days in the developed eggs. thanks!
