I am almost beside myself today..... last time we put 21 eggs into lockdown, and welcomed 17 fuzzies. Yay! 4th hatch and we are finally getting the hang of what temp/humidity to run the incubator at (after starting a couple of months ago with 4 out of 20, and those only arrived day 25 - you could say we have been on a steep learning curve!) Now this week I have 36 Wyandottes that I paid quite a lot of money for, (isn't that always the way?) and on day 22 we have 3 who safely hatched yesterday, but no sign of any further pipping or action. Of the 36 eggs I had concerns for 5, but was still hoping for more than 1 hatch from each 10 good eggs. But I've done nothing different this time! aarrgghh! I don't understand. Is someone just testing me and my perserverance? Or do different breeds require different conditions? I would have thought what worked for Araucanas and Australorps would work just fine for the Wyandottes too? They were bought in eggs but I only drove about half an hour to pick them up, they actually came from closer to home than the Araucanas did which travelled with me just fine.
