I have been hatching eggs this week. Today is day 24. Since Thursday morning and last night I hatched 13 out of my 23 viable eggs. I locked down on day 18 and DID NOT open the bator. I kept the humidity around 70-75% at all times. Today I finally and reluctantly decided to help the ones still alive that haven't done anything except a pip hole for over 24 hours. Every one of the 10 left are shrink wrapped and glued in. 7 were dead and 3 I was able to help. Over several hours to let them absorb all, of course. Anyways, I just don't understand what happened. 13 are perfect. The 3 I helped are doing ok. I'm concerned about one of them but, we will just have to see.. Here's the run down of my incubation. I have a little giant, still air. I rotated the eggs 3 times daily while sitting in a cardboard carton using a peice of sterilized wood to tilt it at each rotation. I kept my heat at 99.5 to 100 degrees. I kept my humidity at around 45 to 50% until day 18 and then bumped it to 70 to 75% there after. I did not open after lock down. I had both air plugs pulled out after lockdown as well and kept it around 99.5 degrees. I had one fluctuation to about 98 degrees on a cold night but the humidity was sill over 68%. That was on day 19. I corrected it all quickly and got it back up. My last hatch was 98%, as in I hatched 20 out of 22 eggs. The two that failed were for the same reason the 7 did this time.. The only thing I can see as a possibility is the ones that died were more close to the bottom edge of the bator. Vs the center.. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks for reading!
