Well, egg #5 hatched out fine. No problems Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Congratualations Cool
You are doing better up in Ohio that I am doing down in Georgia. A black
shoulder peahen chose to lay and incubate her eggs inside coop on
cement floor. I am not certain if this caused the only fertile egg to be
malpositioned (head outside wing and left leg twisted behind body).
I performed rescue procedure but the naval was extra bad and the
peachick died. I hated to lose this peachick that is the same "white
as the driven snow" color that its father, Midnight, was when he was
hatched by a white silkie in 1989. By the time Midnight was three weeks
old he had tan wing feathers with brown bases. Most bs peachicks have
pale buff wings.
Last year the same bs peahen incubated her eggs on bare earth under
shelter and raised a daughter who is still with her. The year before that
she had a son that I sold.

I forgot to complete my former post paperbag
I do have three peachicks that have, so far, avoided being planted
in the poultry memorial garden.
There is a scruffy six week old green spalding that came close to
death when it eggyolk began coming out of naval Mr. Green after it was two
weeks old (should have been absorbed by then) but after spending
two or three days getting most of yolk removed the naval did heal
so that now I have screaming brat :wow
There is a four week old black shoulder spalding with green spalding
peahen. This one looks bigger and healthier than the aforementioned
peachick that is two weeks older.
Then there is the white spalding (two weeks old yesterday) that is sole
surviving offspring of Kid and Everest. It is still in the brooder where it
can hear screaming brat being fed so that it can demand some treats, too :chickendance

Egg #6 hatched out well, but developed splayed legs. Put in the "braces" described in peachick orthopedics and he's standing up well now, braces come off tomorrow

Egg #7 to hatch today or tomorrow

So it looks like humidity could have been the issue. The last two have hatched independently and done relatively well compared to the 4 previous. Have the humidity up to about 80%. Realize this may be too high, but trying to correct for what was probably way too low humidity for a large part of the incubation.

Thanks for all the help, Todd

I run my incubator at 99.5 and 50% humidity in the air very humid, will flood the chicken. I do not think you are the eggs enough, I would like to lease 3 or 4 times every day I open them in an incubator constantly hours.
