I hatched Ancona duck eggs very successfully, so when It came time to try my first batch of chicken eggs I was very dissapointed when only 3 made it. I had 3 hatch, 2 hatch and die one right away and one that night. I had several fully form and never hatch, or pip the shell and never make it out. I am trying again and really worried about my humidity. I don't remember exactly what I had it on the first hatch. I have found so many conflicting temps. I purchased Storey's book and found many resources online only to make me more confused. Please help. I am in south Florida and would love to get advise from those in this area about humidity and what has worked for them. I have a Hova Bator still air. Thanks Valorie

Come on over to the Florida state thread and explain your situation. A member that's a regular there, cmom, has hatched 100's (maybe 1,000's) of chicks and can tell you what has worked so well for her.
