Hatching problems

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all
I have joined it just today.
Well i have love birds and those are breeding as well.
The main problem that is being faced by most of the fanciers in this part of the year is DIS.
DIS stands for dead in sehll.
Breeding season starts from september and lasts till April.May to August is too hot here so nobody give them boxes to breed.
First clutch is hatched fine in September October and so is the last one in March April.
Problem occurs during second clucth in December January.
This dead in shell or late embryonic death is faced in Almost 80% of eggs.
And have to throw them away.
Hen hatches it well enough till it enters last period of hacthing.Usually after 16,17 days.( 21 days is the hatching time ).When i candle eggs , i use to find that chicks have died inside.I read so many blogs and forums as well but haven't found them good enough.
How can i overcome this problem ?
Humility remains around 60-70 while temperature in winter hovers around 15-20.
I am giving them Soluvite D Breeder and Calciums occasionally with soft food and corns vegetables at times.

Hoping for a reply soon.

And sorry for my poor english.

Many thanks in advance.

What do you give your love birds for nesting material? Are you positive this is not a matter of low humidity?  Decsribe your weather during December and January.

This is a problem I had.  During the coldest months the furnace ran more causing the air to be dry lowering humidity.  I provided more bathing water and misted the nest slightly a few days before the hatch date. I also drenched the outside of the nest box with water by draping a water soaked cloth over the top and back of the box and wetting the cloth daily.  A small jar of water can be put in the nest box with holes punched in the lid.
