I've been having bad luck.
Currently trying to incubate some American game cross with asil and shamo but no luck. They keep showing no development.
Currently running on a brinsea ovation and a broody hen but no signs of development the roosters mount the hens.
Temp 99.5
Temp ~40 the room is humid
Turning 180 minutes

I am incubating with regular backyardmix and those are developing but not these

Dumb question and standard to ask haha, but have you checked your temp and humidity in the incubator with accurate calibrated instruments, or are you just going off what the incubator says?

Edit: missed part about rooster. Are you positive he is doing his job correctly and that the eggs are actually fertile

Yes, one does but the other is questionable

I am planning on getting a hygrometer to measure the humidity and temperature.


Is digital less acurate?

Gamefowl are normally very fertile. I'm wondering if you have a low grade infection within your flock affecting your flocks fertility? Make sure your flock is well-fed, parasite free and housed in clean conditions.
