Oh no so sorry to hear that, were they still alive? Well today is day 19 and can you believe I woke up to a chick zipping the shell. I am a little worried that it's too early! I did incubate them in my LG for the first 3 days at a higher temp (that I didn't realize), but then set them in the hovabator at the perfect them and humidity. I just didn't expect them to start hatching already!

I am much less anxious this hatch, lets just hope I stay this way!

Dear Scubadeaux.I to am so sorry you had to go through this......If it helps at all..you certainly helped the rest of us with your learning experience.
I think I wrote in here my experience with helping eggs.I read that some folks have success with it but I have not.
Out of three that I have helped, two died within a few days and one that did make it is just not thrifty....very small.I truely am not certain I did this little one a favor.
This last one had a toe missing on one foot,the other legs spayed and foot not right, was tiny.I did everything I knew to do,wrapped the leg, hand fed ect. and it passed.I really think it was under a lot of stress being messed with and trying to stand..Not sure I am going to help again.

Newly weds, lets hope you just have a very strong baby that cannot wait to see you .........
You know we will be waiting to hear updates.

Smchickfarms.......so good to hear from you again and Great news about your sons wins.

O.K......
I have to talk to all of you this morning.It would not be a good time to discuss it with hubby...............
There are hatching eggs for blue Americaunas for sale........................OMG.................I think I have to have them
...but had commited to hubby that I would not hatch anymore this year due to not wanting chicks
when our bad weather starts....Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I wish the grown up part of me would kick in.
so how do I handle this..........say, look dear....the incubater layed eggs.......................or I do not have a clue where these came from.one of my online friends must have sent them..............Oh crap.............
If I told him "I have to have these eggs." He would say. "why don't you get 2 dozen and fill the inc."
I'm just feeling like such a child.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I'll let you know what happens.............
Later

Wolfwoman That is AWESOME!!! I hatched Orloffs a few weeks ago, it was a really rough hatch, and ended up with two, and I think a roo and a pullet
. I am wanting to add the mahogany to them. Please keep me updated on this, I love these and am hoping to give another try at hatching them now that I have a better bator
