its day 24 and nothing so i toss them now the eggs are not even moving so what do yall think
I am sure some more qualified will answer you. Just wanted to add my first experience, mine hatched yesterday and today, and two more just now pecking through, in a friends incubator. For somereason his turkey, Quail and peacocks did not hatch this go around, and mine were at day 24, we were just about to trash them when I get a call that I had chicks!
I had a late hatch two weeks ago. I had chicks hatching at days 22 & 23 but non after. On day 24 I took the eggs out and checked them all. About five were fully formed but dead. I was having major problems with temp control with my Brower top hatch. I completely disassembled the incubator and found dust and lint buildup where the fan blows the warm air up into the egg area. This was apparently causing circulation problems hence temp control problems. My guess is this could be a problem for anyone with this type of incubator. A good vacuuming around the bottom of the tower toward the end of the 21 day hatch period should head off any problems. I reccommend this for Brower top hatch bators in addition to cleaning and disinfecting after every hatch. Temp control is right on with the batch I now have incubating.
Id take them out carefully and do eggtopsies on them. You might find one alive, but it's doubtful.
i just done an eggtopsie on 2 of them and i found fully devoloped dead chicks one was kinda dry and it had poked the air sac and the other was wet and had not poked the air sac so what did i do wrong
You have to sit down with a journal and follow your temp and humidity levels for the 21 days, also making sure that they had good oxygen levels in the bator, not too much handling or candling them.
ok i will do
