    ok i have a little giant incuabtor and so far its worked well.....3 days before my eggs started hatching i took them out of the turner. well some of the had started hatching their doing well....

    but for some others, i picked the egg up and there was this mucas like stuff on the bottom, kind of bloody like but not, and it looked like the egg was trying to hatch but it died.

    now there wasnt enough room to spread them out. so the eggs that turned out like that were the ones sitting right above the water, is that too much mouisture for them or what? why are some of them doing that?

    i made arrangements and moved them all away from the water, but i did leave the water in there of course. please help.

    What were your temp & humidity readings during incubation & the last 3 days? Is your Little Giant still air (no fan) or forced air (has fan)? With a little more info, perhaps we can help figure this out.
