    we had that happen a few weeks ago, not fun when the bator is full and 4 days from hatch.

    Sorry to hear it happened to you too.

    What kind of bator do you have? By the way so sorry about your hatch, very heartbreaking. I lost my first three hatches til I got a better bator, just keep trying.

    That happened to me two weeks ago. It's extremely disheartening--especially since two little ones made it to the last week and then quit. I caught the spike early on but obviously there was some damage--also could've been cold temps in shipping...
    But I'm going again (now with a new incubator from Brinsea--the eco model) and I'll keep going till I get what I want--freedom from hatcheries and the maybe-we-have-it at the feed store....

    Jump back in and do it again!! [​IMG]
