    did you take any pics of them after you cracked them? if so post them people here can help determine if they were infertile or not. just because they didnt start to develope doesnt me they werent fertile. although i would have waited till day 10 to toss any. if i hadnt i would of have tossed out almost all of them

    if you dont want to contuine to try and hatch anymore this year i would at least work on your incubator to get everything right such as temp and humidity. if you cant get all that to stablize you might have to start over with a new fresh cooler and if you do ask others for info on building one and for pics. you might be able to combine everyones idea to make an incubator that works for you

    Day six it is hard to tell. What made you crack them open anyways. I can never see anything till at least day 10?
