MY FIRST HATCH!! Do you think that these newbie mistakes are going to cost me the whole hatch??? I got in 6 Silkie Showgirl (supposedly) and 16 Araucana (real deal) eggs, let them sit from shipping for about 6 hours (but they sat in the Post Office nicely protected for 5 hours before that). I hear that not letting them sit more is going to harm my hatch. 3 Araucanas and 1 Silkie had (from my virgin eye) detached bubbles. The Silkies all had condensation at first, which I dried them of and then it never returned. I have been dilegently turning them with clean hands (3x per day when I am working, 4-5x per day when I am not. I started turning on the first day. Now I read that maybe I shouldn't have turned them AT ALL for 3 days. And, I am using an old Hova Bator still air, which holds temp REALLY well, but it doesn't have a grid on the bottom so the eggs are sitting directly on styrofoam. Do you think that all of these things are going to add up to a particuarly bad hatch? I know you don't have a crystal ball, but if I don't see anything when it hits 5 days, should I call it a day? My other question is that obviously the temp is decreased when the eggs get turned. Which is more important, turning them or maintaining the temp? I know the minimum to turn is 3x, but is it worth it to turn more than that when it does indeed drop the temp? My incubator does bring the heat back pretty quick. Thanks in advance for your help. Be kind! I know I have a lot to learn!
