    I did a batch of 10 eggs. All the smaller breed chicks hatched but only one of the larger breed hatched and she needed help. All other large breed chicks were fully formed, egg sack absorbed and looked perfect. But 2 piped and died shortly after and others never pipped. Fully formed and perfect looking and didn't make it. Any ideas why this would happen??
