Just hatched out seven an put these in just now...
They are so CUTE<3
Thanks here are more pics...
I'm going to be borrowing my friends styrofoam incubator before I buy my own, just to try it out, and it's a styrofoam incubator. I have never used an incubator, just let my hens do it, so I'm not sure about the humidity. I know the temp should be 99.5 to 100 and I have to turn the eggs at least 3 times a day. So, what should I keep the humidity at? The humidity in my house is around 20%. I will be doing most likely 10-13 eggs, mostly bantams, and I will be setting them on the sixth of march.
@AnnikaLF I have 13 eggs in a styro right now that are on day 14- I will keep y'all posted on how it turns out.
I have 2 that are going into lockdown Monday...
Eggs are in lockdown nervous as a new parent lol
Mine are going into lockdown soon too, but I don't have very high hopes... I think only 1 out of 15 eggs is alive.
8 are probable clears, 2 have the start of something that looks like a blood ring, and 4 got scrambled.
I am having strange problems with ruptured yolks in un-shipped eggs.
We have been having trouble because the breed has a lethal gene that will cause some problems. I'm staying hopeful . Best of luck to you.
I'd chime in, but kuchchicks and I use the same method....lol
Styro bators, if you are not in a high altitude, generally have better success if you use a low humidity incubation method and watch air cells to know how to adjust. I use a Little Giant 9200, one of the most hated brands and I have excellent hatches, healthy chicks, no leg or navel issues. I use this method: http://letsraisechickens.weebly.com...anuals-understanding-and-controlling-humidity
I have two Black Japanese Bantams that were just "thrown in" as extras from eggs I bought from a girl locally. I wasn't sure if I would get anything either due to the lethal gene, but both hatched out just fine. I was hoping I'd have a pair, but I ended up with two girls....lol
