Looking for knowledge, oh great BYC wise ones!! We set BO eggs on the morning 6th of February in a homemade incubator (miss prissy style). Allowing it to run for almost a week before the first set of eggs arrived. We had 14 eggs, 9 proved fertile, 3 made it to day 18. We kept our temps at 100 and humidity at 50+%, the temps did swing. So this morning, day 23 still nothing from the eggs, Im thinking none of these 3 are going to hatch so lets open one up and see what went wrong. Well . my dear little chicky was ALIVE!!! It was almost fully developed but its belly was clear with no feathers and looking like it was lacking another few days. The yoke was a yellow-green color. Needless to say it died when I so rudely evicted it from its shell. We counted days and counted again and came up with the same. I have included a link to my site with a pic. http://www.hollandhideaway.com/chickens.htm I know I jumped the gun a little with the day 23 but this guy looks like he needed another few days. So questions: Question 1: Is it possible that the time it takes for the bator to heat back up to temp causes a delay in the onset of embryonic growth thereby delaying a hatch? Question 2: Is the yoke supposed to be a greenish yellow? Question 3: Does this little guy look normal? If no, why? Thanks so much for your input!
