    I swear my hatching percentage is actually going down! Today is day 20 with NO pips and no peeping. I do think my temp may have been a bit low...more on the 98.5 - 99.5 side, but the water wiggler stayed pretty constant at 99. My second bator has Harvest Breeze Farm (Shari) cochin eggs (5) plus BugLadyLeah's..MF, EE, cochin, etc. I'm going to be more vigilant with the temp the next few days and see if that is the problem.

    [​IMG] I've been sick in the bed with a terrible fever/vomiting flu the last 2 days, so I really haven't paid as much attention as I should have. Gads, my 21 yo daughter (no she doesn't even live here) had it last week and was in the ER for fluids. I'm toughing it out and making myself drink!! OK...enough whining...

    I hope to have something positive to post tomorrow or the next day. Here hoping and praying...[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear you're not feeling well!!! Hope it passes quickly!!!

    Good luck with your hatch - maybe (hopefully) they're just a little delayed.
