Attempt 1-Fail So instead of giving up after my first batch I decided to make a journey out of it and document how everthing goes both right and wrong. Our weather here is Bipolar seriously it cant choose between hot and cold.So here we go! We started with a Styrofoam cooler we got the medium size since this is our first ever batch, next we had a old light that we had not used in years with a 25 watt bulb. We got a white bulb but i dont know if it makes a difference. We added water and paper towels for humidity until it was perfect. I have read 55-70 from day 1-17 then from 18 till 24 hours after hatch it needs to be 65-70 I have also read the Temp needs to be between 97-101f With my first set I do not know what I did wrong but this was the home and by day 10 almost all had the Blood Ring as you can see. I had 2 that i couldnt tell and of those 2 only 1 have a live baby chick still it was itty bitty. T Attempt 2 Today I took the advice and tried to change up the incubator (well my husband did) I placed water in the bottom and covered it with chicken wire. The temp has been changing all day but i did get 2 eggs today. I have 3 rhode island reds and i wish they where broady. Ill be monitoring the temp and humidity for the next few days. Good News!! We are on day 7 I was having quite a bit of trouble with my incubator for 2-3 days before my husband decided to take matters into his own hands. He went to my grandparents and got some junk (a old thermostat, cooler, light, laptop fan, glass) and let me just tell you his incubator is perfect. I watched it almost all day and the temp finally stabilized. I then transfered my eggs to the new incubator. Today I candled my 7 day old eggs and GUESS WHAT?? VEINS!! Its still going to be a long run but there is hope!
