Peeping day 21 nothing day 22

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This is my second hatch and the first time I got 21 chicks to hatch out of 38 fertile eggs. This time I only ended up with 17 that made it to lock down out of 30 fertile. Yesterday morning I could hear some peeps and see some rocking slightly but today absolutely nothing. Today is day 22. I know they can go late a couple of days and I have had a lot of trouble maintaining the temp since lockdown. It concerns me that I could hear/see life yesterday but not today. Any thoughts?

Hi! I'm sorry, I just noticed no one responded to you. Have they made any progress? Have you candled them or done a float test?

Thanks - I did candle and float test many of them today - they were all dead.  I have about 8 more in there - I am sure they are probably dead also - no sounds or movements.  I think it was the temp - I just couldn't get it stable again after lock down.
