I sure hope so. Every hatch I figure out something wrong with my incubator. The last batch got a 0% (and found out my incubator was 5 degrees off what it was reading)... batch before that I got 2 out of 12.. before that 5 out of 12.... Most people get better with time. I've gotten worse. But I figure you can't get worse than 0%... and I added a million thermometers this time, 2 fans, an auto-turner... I think that's it. And I'm being very strict on myself to only candle on the important days (7,14, and 18). I need to get the hang of this soon. I have expensive eggs coming in March.
Feeling your pain! Let's think positively...this time it will be better!
We are due a great hatch and it will be this one! Will be sending good vibes to your little egglings. I've got some special eggs in the bator for this hatch too. Fingers crossed. Triple checking the temp., quarter turn when candling days 7, 14, and 18 only, obsessively washing hands, look but don't touch the eggs. My first few hatches were the best and it has been downhill since. This is the hatch to reverse the trend. Visualizing lots of fluffy butts. Positive self talk.
