    He just admitted that he bumped the bator I'm using for a hatcher...Didnt think to fix the eggs until MUCH later (like, the next day)...Is that why they're not hatching?

    Well, if it's ok for him to "bump" your bator, then I think by law it's ok for you to "bump" him!!!! LOL!!! Have you got him sleeping on the couch? MEN!!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It probably didn't harm your babies, unless he bumped it pretty hard and rolled the eggs around pretty good. It's possible that he rolled the eggs and now the chicks are disoriented, but they're pretty resilient, so hopefully you're ok.

    Tell your husband that he needs to stay away from the bator!!!! [​IMG]

    I'd rather have it bumped when they're in the hatcher than the first several days of incubation. When I think how the first ones to hatch bowl the others around I doubt that it would hurt them.

    I'd leave the lid shut and leave them alone at this point in time.

    Just remember - if you kill him there's always someone pouring concrete to hide the body in

    Sounds like he's trying to eliminate his competition! [​IMG] So far, a jury might not let homicide go, but one more assault on the 'bator might swing them over to your side, especially if there are any BYCers with jury duty. I agree that you should bump one of his "eggs"...HARD!! [​IMG]

    I'm ruthless when it comes to protecting those babes! [​IMG]
