    Low Hatch Rate

    Hello everyone! Thank you in advance for any and all suggestions! I have an advanced Brinsea incubator and I am having low hatch rates.

    Guinea keet with umbilical cord hanging out?

    So this keet hatched with the cord wrapped around it's body and I ended up having to cut it because it started to suffocating it. I cut it and it bled a bit but it's ok now. The only problem is that it looks so different than the umbilical cord I've seen before on chicks so I just want to make...

    One day there's a chick, next day there's blood.

    I had an egg that would be ready to hatch any day now but just two days ago I candled the egg and all I can see is blood! No veins, no chick, no anything. What could've happened? I saw it moving around about 5 days ago and it was fine! Did it explode inside the egg? How can I stop this from...

    Persistant shrink-wrapping problem

    I have done 4 hatches so far in my incubator, and this problem occurs in all hatches, to about 25-50% of the hatch. It has occurred with chicks from several breeds, and also to a Chinese painted quail chick, so I know it isn't a genetic issue. The incubator is a little giant still air...
