23, yes I did. I know at least the dark brahma is dead, it sloshes.
Congratulations on all the hatching!
Today is my day 21. I had a big event today so I have not hovered over my broody to listen for peeps, but when I tucked everyone in for the night I did note a half a shell that had been pushed out from under mama! There's at least one in there!
Tomorrow is Mother's Day so after church this Mom will be checking to see how many babies my chickie mom might have hidden under her feathers.
Did you try float testing? Day 23 I'd probably pitch them I couldnt you see movement. Could always make a small hole in the aircell end of the eggs to take a peek inside if you wanted to be 100% positive. If you eggtopsy them start from the aircell end of the egg just in case it still alive.
No, I didn't.
I usually pitch them between 23-25. How was temp and humidity during incubation?
As far as I saw, perfect. Humidity 25-30%, temp 101-102...... Maybe it spiked when I wasn't there?
Thanks! 2 already went to their new homes
Its possible. I take it you don't have a unit that displays the current temp and a high/low for the last 24? Some people will keep eggs in longer past 23 and there's no harm in doing so if you think there's an outside chance one might still hatch. Me, I'm a survival of the fittest type person.
No, I do not. No room in there, lol!
I highly doubt they are alive, they all have the murky look...........I don't wanna be an expert in ID'ing deads!
....... I'll see though, maybe just maybe I'm wrong...
hopefully your wrong. Is there a defined aircell line? Like you would see a defined line on day 14 of 18. Or is it kinda jaggedy looking?
