I'm at 18 days, egg turner was removed and eggs candled for the last time, I'm not to sure about 2 of them, the 2 really really dark brown ones, they seemed very porous looking every time they were candled yet they're impossible to see thru...I'm pretty sure they are duds but lef them in just in case as this is my 1st hatch ever with chickens, I have only done one other hatch 15 years ago with 3 duck eggs, 2 hatched. I'm now trying 1 dozen mixed eggs that I purchased locally. I'm also pretty sure I smell a rotten egg but can't tell which it is, pretty sure it's gonna be one of the darks, hope it doesn't explode in the next 3 days, and hope it won't effect the chicks that are alive. My question to y'all is that I was hearing pipping when I candled them and removed egg turner...is this normal? I do remember hearing my ducklings a few days prior to hatching, I really hope they hatch ok I have read all I could read for months prior to this and have been following a few chicken pages faithfully reading all your stories to learn more. I'm using a Hovabator still air, i used an egg turner and maintained my humidity at approx 35% or so until today when we increased it to 70ish and have been maintaining 101-102 temp throughout, as per everyones recommendations on a still air not as per the directions which I don't have since it's 15 yrs old. Is there anything else I need to watch for at this point? I have my brooder supplies, using a big box or large rubbermaid well vented but warm and safe from other animals, i have a lamp, not using a heat bulb as I am in florida and it's still 90 here and have my shavings, starter chick feed (i chose non medicated), water and food dishes...is there anything I missed? I'm at lockdown so I gues for now I will hope whatever I smell doen't explode all over the rest of them! I looked over all the eggtopsy photos last night in horror and am so scared my babies will drown oe get stuck inside now after reading and seeing the pictures...but we wanted bonded chicks and figured they will be bonded to us more if we hatch them versus ordering from a hatchery. Thanks in advance and good luck to all in Florence's Path...praying for everyone safety and the safety of their animals!
