    When you are completing your hatch rate, do you count your infertiles as well? I'm on day 7 and I have culled two eggs so I'm wondering if I count that against myself? My last rate was 100%, but only three eggs so I guess I got lucky, this time around I am 6 embryos out of 8 eggs! There are silkies so I'm really hoping and prayiing for all 6 lol

    I didn't count those that were infertile. That's just me.

    if it's infertile the egg wasn't viable in the first place, so no chick would have formed that would have hatched. that's my reasoning.

    (13 chicks out of 19 eggs, 4 pipping & zipping so far since 6:30AM Alaska standard time! wish me luck!)
