Re: Start of day 20

I bought a stethoscope ( will need one for nursing eventually lol) so that I can listen to them prior to hatching! :whistle:

Re: Start of day 20

all that rain should make for a nice ice cover before the fluffy stuff starts to fall. :snowman: I'm staying put for the next few days.

Re: Start of day 20

Nothing so far...not a peep, a quiver, pip, nada....both of my previous hatches occurred on day 22 even when I had set them early in the morning day one.  So I am not in panic mode yet.  :nervous:

Re: Start of day 20

Yardbirds I think you said you set your eggs on a Saturday? If so tomorrow is day 21 so don't panic yet!

Re: Start of day 20

I must be confused then... for example

if the day I set them Saturday 645 am was January 1st (it wasn't the 1st but)
the following saturday would be the 8th
the saturday after would be the 15th
and this saturday would be the 22nd

what I read was if you set them early in the morning that is day1 and if in the afternoon or evening it is day 0

so my understanding would be that today should be the start of day 21 (hatch day) since I set them the morning of Dec 29th
(3 days in December + 18 days in January) ??? :huh:

Please correct me if I am mistaken.  :)

Re: Start of day 20

I am looking back on my calendar from my hatches last year trying to confirm...it seems I often did not write down the day they hatched just the day I set the eggs and the numbers that hatched. I see one where I had dates and I set on a Friday and they hatched on a Friday 3 weeks later but I didn't write down the time of day I set the eggs.

Still though, i think you are correct, from this morning (Friday) to tomorrow morning is your day 21. But if the temperature was a little on the cool side they may hatch tomorrow.

Re: Start of day 20

Thanks PG, I was wondering with all the differences of opinion if eggs hatched after a full 21 days of incubation....which would mean hatch day is the 22nd or if hatches normally occurred just on day 21.  Both of my previous hatches were on day 22 even though one was set at 9:00 am and the other at 8:00 pm.  Everyone talks about EO's always hatching early so I was concerned that I haven't seen any eggs rolling or spinning or even quivering.  Both previous hatches the eggs remained more or less stable and the only time they moved was when actual pipping was underway.  Thanks so much for your encouragement and wisdom... =D

Re: Start of day 20

In my Miller LG styro bator, EO would start pipping on day 19, but the hatch would go for 3-4 days... :(
In my first sportsman hatch, nothing happened til day 21, and the hatch was done by the end of day 22. :)
I've got 50 mutt eggs in there now. :whistle:

Re: Start of day 20

OK I guess I should have spoke to the previous owner of the incubator before I set this batch of eggs.

I have just learned that his hatches were always successful on day 21 with the factory setting of 99.9F for the forced air model genesis.  Because of my research stating that forced air bators should be set at 99.5F ...that is what I did so needless to say I am running somewhat cooler and should expect a later hatch.  Let's hope so and that I didn't drown the little boogers either as he also stated he never used both water chambers...just number 1 and of course I used both for lockdown and my humidity is at 60 to 62%.  :nervous: and still praying for a successful :chickout:
