Last week the chicks started hatching. I could not get the temperature regulated. Before I put the eggs in I had run the incubator for a few days and had the temperature steady. But after putting the eggs in, the temperature went all wonky. There were a few days when the temperature was 7 degrees too high and I was sure I had cooked them. Didn't have much hope for any to hatch because of the wide fluctuations. Then on day 19 of 21 when checking the eggs I found the incubator stone cold. Somehow it had gotten unplugged and must have been like that for most of the day. With a heavy heart I plugged it in, and being the eternal optimist, hoped for the best. Day 21 came and went with nothing. On day 22 there was a faint peeping coming from the eggs, and over the next 4 days I was able to get 13 chicks. It was a very poor hatch but was able to get a few out of it. The incubator is now running properly with more eggs in it so hopefully next hatch will be better.
