May someone have jarred your incubator?
Here is a Day 14 candle pic for comparison:
I have no idea how my incubation is going...I went to check the water level and the doors were frozen shut at my farmhouse. It was -25 yesterday high of -7. I am sure it is fine.
french black, blue, and splash marans.
This is my first hatch of shipped eggs. We'll see how it goes.
No, I doubt it..... It was placed in a very seperate part of the house against the wall, only way it could have gotten severly jarred would have been to push it onto the floor. :/ Thanks for the picture, In comparison I think all 8 of the BSL are probably not fertile, not died after development. I have been getting fertile eggs from them, so not sure why they would suddenly stop. My roos are rather young, 10-11 months, so maybe I'll get better hatch rates in the future.
Turkeys! I am so excited to see these little guys!
I candled on day 14 and found my air cells to be very small. My humidity has been between 40-45% pretty consistently, but my hens are pretty young and their egg shells are awfully thick, I read that might inhibit evaporation. Anyway, I've been running it dry (stays at about 20% humidity dry) for two days. They still seem small but I think they are getting bigger, I didn't mark the air cells until today (day 16). I'll see if they look better by day 18. If they are still small, should I not put the humidity all the way to 65%, or ?? Also, my eggs are sitting upright in cartons, can they hatch this way or should I remove them before lockdown? This is a homemade incubator I bought used and the cartons are actually attached with zip ties, but I can cut them off.
So after candling yesterday, I notice that one of the two remaining eggs wasn't moving properly, I checked again this morning... It's gone. This is my worst set ever. Started with 24. 4 were duds, 1 fertile but with an internal crack and 19 good ones. Now I'm down to 1 due the 28th and 1 due March 4th.... Grrrrrr
Aw, I'm sorry I hope you get better luck next time.
I'd like to join. I'm incubating 18 eggs. Ranging from Easter Eggers to Leghorns. Tomorrow is day 5 so I'm going to candle them and hope to see that they are fertile. Theyre hatch date is March 4th
