I miscalculated the due date - and only checked the calander too late- So I have eggs due that were not put into lockdown when they should have been. After 24 hours in lockdown I hadnt seen a lot of action- and as they are due tomorrow- I would have expected to see a beak in an air cell or a pip at least. I drilled a small hole into an egg so I could check the membrane- and sure enough- it was white and tough looking. I bought some puppy training pads a while ago- but havent used them all in the brooder- so thought I would try using them- wet over the eggs- rather than a face washer like I have in the past- They work brilliantly!!!!

I wet them with warm water and drapped them over the eggs- they stay warmer than the face washer too- allowing the eggs to be at the correct temperature. I found them to be a little cool when using a face washer...Well after just 3 hours of the eggs wearing the puppy training pads- I have pips!!
