We bought a "little Giant" with egg turner last month-- ran it thru our 1st hatch with NO PROBLEMS whatsoever-- stayed right at 100f the whole time! Now those little fluffy-butts are healthy and happy, we lost only 1 during the hatch... BUT: THIS batch is 100% different!!! Of course, now instead of my own "mutt" eggs, I have my special Polish eggs I bought for My DD's Birthday in there--- day one-- the temp stayed at 100f for the 1st 6 hours, so stopped worrying... until I came home from the store to find it at 106f!! It took HOURS to get it back to 100f (down to 95-- up to 102-- down to 97-- back up to 102.... EERG!!!) Now it stayed between 99f and 100f for 24 hours-- then WHAMO!! Up to 102f again!!!! Can I even look forward to a hatch-- or can I pretty much figure they are dead? I have about 18 other "mutt" eggs in with them, shoulkd I crack one to see "whats up"??? Candling NEVER works for us... go figure.... ANY help or suggestions is GREATLY appreciated.
