    Day 21 - 3 pipped yesterday. 2 of them hatched today, 1 more pipped today. All are ee's.

    Also have 6 blrw in the same batch, looked fine on day 18 and nothing happening with them.

    Weird or not?[​IMG]

    My first hatch I had 6 Salmon Favs that looked great on day 18 and not one of them hatched.

    All were fully developed and dead when I did the eggtopsys.

    It happens.

    I think I will do an eggtopsy if they don't work out. I could barely see in the ee's and they are hatching and the blrws looked fine so I guess we'll wait it out![​IMG]

    Give them till day 25 at least ,
    I hate it when I see people post on here , my eggs didnt hatch so I broke one open and there was a live baby in there and it died when I opened it , make shure you give them time .
