    Sounds like your incubator temperature was a tad high. Next time you hatch, bump it down a half to one whole degree or so. Good luck for the rest of your hatch!!

    Humidity stayed the same though. I just added water through a vent hole because I had the vents closed and decided the others needed some air to fluff

    Whatever happened with this? I'm having the same thing. 6 hatched yesterday and something like 40 are doing nothing. There were temperature spikes everytime a chick hatched--did that kill the others?
