Wow......thank you guys.....Monday is candling day then!
Great info , thanks!
So an egg carton doesn't cause an issue for them to get stuck while hatching?
The manual of the incubator said that the chick will turn itself in the right position in those 3 days when you put it on it's side.....
Where is the area the chicks dry off then if they hatch in the egg carton?
How long will you have to have the hatched out chicks in the incubator to dry off untill you can put them in the brooder?
I think last year quite an amount of eggs didn't hatch due to temperature and humidity changes because we took the chicks out within 10 minutes of drying off.
So many questions!
12 peeps have hatched in 24 hrs....2 eggs have cracks but not developingover the last 2hrs or so.......so I took the 12 out and are in the brooder (I have the feeling I did something wrong .....it took me less then a minute but I have the feeling the humidity in the incubator and temp changed....not sure if this would change the hatchability)....many residents and staff visit the little ones with big smiles on their faces.....should I just wait and see if more peeps are going to make it or not?! what is the chance more are going to make it?! pics will be coming soon!
