Here is a recorded tally and overall look put from my hatch, It may help others I don't know. I f you know any answers to my questions that'd be cool too. Here it is, hope you like it. I had started out with 33 Leghorn eggs on the 1st in my plain jane, still air, non-turner, Little Giant. Did I mention it was my first hatch? lol. Anyways I got to day 7 and two were infertile. Ok now down to 31. I hand turned 3 times a day same times. Got to day 14, 12 seemed dead. I marked them and put them back in. On day 18 I only candled the ones with question marks. All were still the same. Checked them out and died young maybe day 8-10. So my number went down to 19. I left the 19 that had no question marks alone they did not get candled again. Day 20 rolled around 9 pips. Next day (22) two chicks out and couple momre pips. At that point I thought I'd had 11 defenet hatches. I waited and waited. More hatched, end of that day I had 7 chicks out. Where were the others? one had zipped and stopped. two were piped nd done nothing since day 20. I was worried, but waited another day. Next day (23) nothing more. I decieded to open the zipper and to pippers. The zip had died...I don't know what happened? Looked dry, I knew I should have helped when I thought I should have. The two pippers were dead too...why? One looked really little and didn't absorb the yolk. If it wasn't ready why'd it pip? The other appeared to be too big in the shell. Suffocated? or maybe couldn't rotate in the shell. IDK. The other Pipper was alive! Woo good stuff! I took it out of the shell and put it in the bator. Looked weak but s/he lived and is still alive and well! Still had some eggs still in there so I continued to wait...and wait. Last night, day 24, I opened them up...all were very developed. at least to day 20 or something.. they had feathers, all formed.. why didn't they pip? More or less I've been confronted with more questions than answers. I'm going to do another incubation. Things I'll change: Auto Turner Less candling Trying egg carton method All 8 chicks that hatched are alive and well to this day. So not counting the first 2 that were not fertile thats about a 24% hatch rate. I'm happy any hatched for my first try. Next time I hope it will be better.
