    I got a few eggs I had to pitch yesterday that I'm not happy about at all. I'm definately happy with those numbers.

    Honestly I didn't even look at the pumpkins or redquills. I had enough room in the bator so I was setting them all anyway. I hatched most with loose air cells, just not eggs with rolling end to end air cells. The 3 eggs I tossed died early (mugs). Could have been packed better.
    Have you ever hatched a cracked egg. I got a mel sims/sweater that I used scotch tape on. It's developing good at day 5. Fingers crossed. Although that one may need some help. The greys I have all look good at day 5 too.

    Good luck! Most of the cracked ones never develop.

    I'll take a pic of it when I get home from work later. You'll see why I didn't use nail polish. It's got a little more than a crack and I didn't want the polish getting on the outer membrane. I was just gonna toss it and figured why not set it.

    This was shipped so if it hatches it will be a miracle. Lol

    Cool, if it has started then it has a slim possibility to hatch.
