    ok we are on day 18 with the egg and he has stopped moving. I can post pictures if you need to see it your self. I am really worried. he was doing fine and then this morning I discovered that the incubator was warmer than usually though the thermometer didn't show any change. It just felt hotter in there. When I candled the egg this morning around 8 he was very slow. So i lowered the light a little bit. LITTLE BIT! and 2 hours later he just isn't moving. Can I save him? Is there anything to be done? This is our first egg. i need him to be ok. please help us.

    Annie, is there any news on Franklin? I'm trying to save/hatch 15 duck eggs whose mother got off the nest after being relocated, and yesterday I was sure one of them had died too. I'm thinking they're about halfway through their incubation period. I had checked on them after work and thought the air temperature was too high; plus, this one has a broken air sac. But this afternoon, just as I was contemplating whether to remove it from the incubator, I saw some minor movement! I'm praying for you and your sister and Franklin.

    I found my incubator had felt extra hot when I was turning eggs. It was at 110. I thought for sure everything was dead. It was full of eggs. So I turned it down. I guess to much. The next morning it was 90. I did not have the best hatch, but many did hatch.
