I'm so sorry.  :hugs

 

But you should try again!  My theory on shrink wrapping is that it happens after they die, not necessarily what causes them to die.  I'm sure it can happen, but they probably died for some other reason.  Don't fault yourself... we learn from our mistakes and do better next time!

Never give up! They always say never count your chickens before they hatch. Some hatches make it and some don't. How was your humidity during the last few days? It seems like it was a little too low. Practice makes perfect
