Can you tell me if this egg is still working?
I don't see any embryo development... what day are you on? If it is early in incubation it may be developing but not yet visible.
I don't know what day I'm in but I think it's about almost a week.
Day 7 you should see the "spider", a series of veins radiating out from the actual embryo. I don't think the egg is fertile.
I'm new to the whole incubating thing and I cant find anywhere what temp to incubate Red Jungle fowl eggs at does anyone know?? If so that would be really great!
99.5 in a forced air incubator seems to be a recommended incubation temperature for most fowl species if you can't find a more specific recommendation.
Ok thanks! Do you know what the humidity should be at? One more question this might be a kinda dumb question but Is the turning and lock-down the same as any other egg?
It depends on your incubator, but follow the proportional air cell charts and candle after a week to see if you need to alter humidity.
I run about 38% during incubation, that works best in my incubator, and bump to 65% for hatching. Others use widely different numbers so I think it is highly dependent on the incubator itself.
And yes, lockdown 3 days before hatch date would be the same. I'm not sure if they'd be a 19 or 21 day incubation, though.
Alright, Thanks so much!
