I am a first time hatcher. We built a homemade, cooler-style incubator. It really is less than ideal, we've had some temp spikes and drops, but our eggs seem to be making it to term (according to candling). We've already had one make it to term. Candled it the morning of day 22 and saw movement, but it never pipped. We eggtopsied it and the only strange thing we found was some creamy white stuff in the egg white (maybe like meconium in humans? Don't know), but the yolk had not been fully absorbed... it had passed away during that process. This is my second term egg. It's day 22. No pips and I saw movement this morning at candling, but I can't help but feel like I could have saved the last little guy and don't want this one to die too!!!! Someone talk some sense into me!
