if I candle my peacock eggs after how many days should I see something?
I have a lady at work who gives me her peacock eggs because she knows we have an incubator (this is our first time hatching)
they usually eat the eggs but shes up for letting us try to hatch them. I turn them 3 x a day and ,y heat is at 99.-100 and I have water in the water wells.
am I doing everything ok?
HI, Maintain humidity at 40-45% for the first 25 days and 60-65% for the last 3 days by adding more water to increase the surface area of evaporation . Measure the humidity with a hygrometer/ thermometer- Sold online at amazon- name is Calliber 111 ) Not just adding water. to the wells.Humidity plays a very imp. role for successful hatching. Every thing else you are doing is correct. By candling, You should be able to see some red veins growing inside the egg after 7 days. Good luck.
How does everyone maintain a humidity of over 45 in their incubators? How often do you have to add water when the humidity drops below that number? I'm using sponges and other "unmentionables" and the humidity drops every 3 days and then I have to add more water? Is this the normal rate at adding more water? Anyone know?
I had a pip when I left for work this morning!!!!!! 1st. one of the season.
My turner is set to move constantly and I am laying them on their sides, both things are new ways for me this year. Hatch day is scheduled for tomorrow so I only have 2 hens laying so my eggs have been put in about every 3 days. Last year I had very little luck hatching but this year is starting out MUCH better.
CONGRATS !!!!!! This is so exciting. Keep us posted.
