I just candled about 1/3 of the eggs in each of the incubators--they are at about 15 days. Some were clear, others showed developed but possibly dead embryos, others had mysterious dark masses that may/may not be chicks, while still others were too darned dark-shelled to see through!
And just because Mother Nature does LOVE her little
jokes on me, I now have SIX broody banty hens out in the coop, all dying
to hatch eggs and obviously MUCH better at it than me.
Bleah, I've been hand-turning eggs for nearly 6 weeks now non-stop. SOMETHING BETTER HATCH.
