Probably ruined an incubator full of eggs

Post by Mississippi Momma on Tue Mar 13, 2012 12:16 pm

I turned the goose, duck and turkey eggs and added some water to the incubator. Then I added a little water to the chicken eggs. While doing this I somehow unplugged the incubator with all the duck, goose and turkey eggs in it. I went in to check the incubators before getting ready for bed and those eggs were cold. I turned the incubator back on but I figure I've lost an incubator full of eggs. I'm going to leave them for a few more days and then candle them to see if there's anything going on. If not I'll have to empty them and start over. I feel kind of sick!

Oh, yes that would hurt. So sorry! We all do things like that from time to time though. Last year I decided it was finally warm enough for my 25 chicks to spend their first night "outside" and not in the brooder under lights. It was warm enough and it was predicted to stay warm through the night. So I had them all snuggled up in their little tractor together...all of them choosing to stay on the ground (open bottom on the structure)...and I locked them up and went to bed. When I woke up the next morning, it had rained and turned cold and when I went outside to check on them...the tractor was sitting in just the one spot that made a rain puddle. I opened the door to find half of them had set in the cold water during the night. I felt awful. I quickly get everyone under lights and I consider myself very lucky that I didn't loose any of them.

Wow...No loss after being exposed to the rain and the cold. That's wonderful.
