So, Set 3 eggs tonight, after adjusting my incubator... Wish them luck! We have also come to the conclusion there should be a book on "incubating eggs for Dummies"... Question is what should the title really be?? See page #2 for details! Ok... I have a Suro totally automatic, including the RH, incubator. I Basically don't have to do anything but candle the eggs and make sure the water stays full in the jug that I'm using. The temperature is correct, along with the RH read out (I've compared both with other thermometers and RH gauges). I stop turning at day 18 and wait and wait and wait... Til they are finally a few days past the due date. I check them and they have just quit. I can't tell you how many times this has happened, and it's very frustrating. My latest victim was a poor little polish chick. This was the liveliest embryo I'd ever seen, then I checked him just before lock-down and no movement at all (and by candling, I could tell he'd quit, but I didn't want to believe it, so I put him back in the bator). I got him out yesterday to do the water bounce test, and in the process I accidentally cracked the shell. He was definitely gone. I opened the egg up, and everything looked perfect. He would have been a beautiful little chocolate polish I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Should I just not candle & hope for the best when day 21 comes around? Other than that, I can't think of anything accept for the fact that my DH has been playing his drums (which are in the basement with the incubator) pretty much recently... Could the vibrations be "scrambling" my babies?? Like I said, I'm desperate!! I really love hatching, but I'm feeling like it's not worth it anymore. I wait, and see these great little chicks developing, only to be completely disappointed after all that time HELP!!
