    my temps were low for a few days.
    (due to my 1yr old turning off the heat
    light repeatedly [​IMG]) so i am thinking
    that the eggs are a bit behind in developement.
    do i still stop turning them at what would be day
    18 or add a few days on to it?
    thank you

    i would turn them untill late at night day 18. then do like normal. we have put eggs in the next day or 2 after we started the bator and the new eggs beat the old ones hatching.

    I also would stick to the theme answer. When the chicken leaves the nest to go eat, I am VERY certain it doesn't stay at 99.5 for very long.

    Maybe you kid was onto something [​IMG]

    late day 18 !

    Go little chickies!
