    Hi everyone! I have been hunting and pecking this site for days trying to figure out why eggs aren't hatching. After candling one of them (day 25) I decided to brave the eggtopsy. Nothing but egg in there. Guessing it wasn't even fertilized. Kind of glad because I was wondering where I went wrong!
    Have a set that shold hatch Monday so I don't want to open again to remove the others still left. Fingers crossed they won't explode between now and then.
    Thanks for all the advice yall gave me without even knowing!

    Najaf if you start you own thread here(new member introductions) - you will be listed as the THREAD STARTER and people will respond to YOUR questions. I'm sorry I have never hatched eggs so can't tell you about any personal experience.

    Hi Najaf - welcome to BYC. Theres lots of info in the learning centre as well as live threads on incubation that i hope you will find useful. Like Drumstick Diva, I have no personal experience incubating eggs - I prefer a mother hen to do all the work [​IMG]

    All the best

    Stomach in knots waiting on the eggs! Seems kind of crazy to be so anxious over EGGS. Am I the only one or is this normal?
