It's my second time hatching in my home made incubator and i had 8 silkie eggs in there. It was supposed to hatched yesterday day 21 and now day 22, i just checked again as i heard no peeps again. So this morning I checked the remaining eggs that were developed and the're dead. Out of the 8 eggs 3 duds 5 fully developed chicks inside all dead. I don't know what i did wrong, I follow all the steps. Though there were two times it spiked to 106 degrees but that's early on like the first week then temp was constant 98-100 degree through out the remaining time. Any advice for my next batch of eggs that is coming maybe tomorrow or Thursday so that it won't happen again?
