Here is the thread for all of you who are just as curious as to how well 5 week old eggs will develop & hatch as I am. They are barnyard mutt eggs. And I will post with each candling to share the results. These eggs are guaranteed to be fertile eggs, as I only had 12 hens and 2 roosters when they were laid. I am doing a dry hatch with them, the temp will be 101.0 -102.0*F. Humidity will be raised on day 18 just prior to lockdown to no less than 63%rh and no more than 68%rh. I am starting with 20 eggs, and will be turning them 3 times per day 8 AM, 4pm, 12-midnight. I can't wait to show my 8yr old niece the veining in the eggs this next week!
