    So along with what I have in my incubator I now have 2 broody hens that are sitting on eggs! A Buff Silkie Bantam with 3 Buff Orpington eggs under her and a Swedish Flower hen with 3 Buff Orpington eggs, 1 Easter Egger egg, and 1 of her own eggs.

    Those are all the reasons I am hatching Anconas too!!! My humidity is currenty 35% it stayed around there +-2%. It did go to 42% during a Texas monsoon. Based on wjat I have researched the humidity should be pkay during this phase, but I could be wrong and happy to adjust. I know the humidity is what determines air cell development. The air cells look good to me. I was able to mark them. I don't know if you can tell from.the photos below but I tried to show you. The infertile eggs dont surprise me i bought them right there at the farmers market. And there was no bullseye when i cracked them. So far I haven't found any that seem to have developed and died. I won't candle again until day 18 unless I need to or smell something funky. [​IMG] [​IMG]
