See, my totally unpopular opinion is....
Open the 'bator, quickly check all eggs underneath for pips, reclose 'bator.
Personally anytime I've heard peeping, there's already been a pip.. just sometimes it was hidden at the bottom of the shell. I've lost too many to let it go to chance. I'm a hatching newbie though.. so take that with a grain of salt.
Keep us updated JJ!
And you too, Wendy! How many are you hatching this time??
Bad bad bad!!
I do the same but my Brinsea comes back up to temp and 65% humidity in 2 minutes. I've ruined
hatched and killed birds doing that with my Little Giant.
OK JJ what's goin on there?
We've got 10 3 day olds downstairs in the bator. It must be a hatching week.
i got 2 piping now its late and im going to sleep or try lol jj
Good idea. When ya wake up you're gonna have flufferbutts!!!
1 of which is a ba from chickenlisa, and the other from lily the cross beak
will post pic,s when i get home from work. gotta run make a buck for now. thanks again for answering my question. jj
still only 1 ee hatched and 2 pips and nothing in the other incubator, we threw out alot of mailed eggs, it stinks,
whats your update jj?
meg, i am not sure, there are just 2 ee's , bob whites, a silkie, and 2 buff orp eggs, and i cant really see but i am hoping some goldlaced wyandottes, but they could be just std mixes, all but the silkie were mailed, not so good results.
YAY congrats JJ!! Pics? pics? pics pics pics??!
Wendy- Sorry to hear about the shipped eggs.. do you think it's the heat? And you are hatching bobwhites??? Are you guys keeping any? :bfs
well, 21 days ago it wasnt too hot to ship, and yes i think we will keep some, i have never had them before so will see
