Incubating

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all, I'm new to this forum. I have a question and was hoping maybe someone could help. I have a really good hatch rare with eggs I get from other flocks. However my own eggs don't do good at all. My chickens are well fed and taken care of and lay really good. Any ideas?
post #2 of 5

More information on why they don't do well would help out a great deal.

 

Rooster(s) are obviously a huge variable to the equation.

My eggs are fertile. They develop and seem to be doing great. It's hatching time when I lose them. Either from piping then failure to zip or just never piping.

Thanks. I checked out the link and it seems really useful. I will double my feeds for the proper nutrition and also my birds for any signs of ailment. I will keep in touch. Thanks again.
