In the Brooder
- Jun 20, 2012
Hi, answer will be greatly appreciated. I was walking down the street and happened to come across a robin egg on the grass. I picked it up and it is fully intact and was a little warm. I brought it in my house and I started up my Brinsea mini advance incubator to 99.1-99.3 degrees fahrenheight and I put a lot of water in the well for high humidity. I realize that no one is supposed to be in possession of any wild birds or their eggs, but I just couldn't help myself. I was wondering if I should stop the turning of the egg 1 or 2 days prior to its hatch day, which is in about 9 days. I know that you are supposed to do this with chicken and other poultry eggs, but I'm not sure with a robin egg. Any knowledgable input would be very appreciated, thanks!
