i've got some silver phoenix eggs here that all seem to be doing great so far. a few of them decided to pip early (hatch day is on the 7th). one of them, the last one to start pipping, was doing great zipping along screaming past the others, he was really eager to get out of that egg. i went to work on the boat figuring that by the time i got home he'd be out. when i called my boyfriend (it's his day off) i asked him how they were doing. he said the first two were busy, taking rests between zipping, but the other one had yolk leeking out of the egg and wasn't moving anymore, no chirps or anything. just still. he said he was obviously dead. he hadn't mover or chirped for hours, and he was for the most part out of his egg. he said it looked like it had drowned in it's yolk. i told him to take the egg out and put it in a shopping bag in the basement. when i came home i took a look at it. i thought it would be alot mroe messy but there was actually very little yolk. i opened the egg up and the poor little thing had some poo on it's butt? is this how it died? not sure what happened, but do you think it had anything to do with the early hatching? or the eagerness to get out of the egg? these were shipped eggs, there was a power outage on day 12 and the temp went down to 96-97 for less than an hour. after that i put the temp up to 101.3 for a few days and then back down to 100.6 like i usually like to keep it at. was a wrong to do that? any ideas on why he died?
