It is our 1st time hatching eggs in our incubator (has an automatic turner), kept the temperature at 99.8, humidity level at 50-55%. it has been 23 days. My husband and I took one egg broke it open very carefully and as soon as the shell cracked we saw movement. Grossed me out. After getting the chick out of the shell, it was breathing but the intestines were on the outside of the little chick, had to dispose of the little chick. Any help as to what could have went wrong. We are going to wait for a few more days before we dispose of the rest of eggs. We do have our own hens and roasters (bardrocks?) they are about 1 year old. Please help!!!!!!!
