So sorry for your loss.
I've noticed that the older I get, the more that happens. I think it started when Clinton was the 1st President younger than me.
Sorry for your loss, but you can take solace in the fact that she's definitely in a better place now.
I haven't given up completely!
Hi!!! I am new to all this and just put my first dozen in the incubator. Its running at 40% humidity and 99.5 F. The eggs were from a local gal that collected them for me and they are 3 days old at the most.. I weighed them and marked the air cells. They were kind of dirty but I put them in anyway. The air cells are all about the size of a dime but I had one Marans egg that I couldn't detect the air cell.
I decided to incubate eggs after having a few chicks starve out after receiving them in the mail. I have 9 chics now but I couldn't see ordering a minimum of 25 so here I go!
Hopefully I can be successful with my first hatch. I am using a hovibator with the #3 water trough filled. Running it dry it was only at 15%.
Wish me luck and pour on the advice.
Personally, I went with Bourbons because of their size, temperament and they are good mothers. The woman that has mine says the hens hatched twenty some this year.
Sally how's your girl feeling today.? Is the fever gone?

yeppers she is feelin better no Billy, thank you are you feelin better now?
Yes I am feeling better. Pain went away before church this morning.
Question.......I have a cabinet incubator and separate hatcher. Why are some of the babies drying inside the eggs? I am having to rescue them and peeling them out of the egg. I lost one thinking it would get out, but it suffocated from being stuck too long (I think). The humidity is steady at about 65 to 68%. Any suggestions?
