Hi... i am on my 3rd try hatching silkies this year. I have very low hatch rates. i have no problem hatching other chickens, it just seems that with silkies, i cant get it right. Ive been told 65% humidity, 70%, and even get it as high as I can.. Im not sure what the problem is, I had less than 50% hatch rate last time. Some of the eggs could have been older, but I dont understand why they fully develop and die before hatching. Is the shell too hard? Do they grow too big? I dont get it. I have a full incubator of eggs to lockdown on Monday. I would like any advice at all on how to hatch these eggs. Last time I hatched in cartons, used an auto turner, and had humidity at 70% and up. I got 7 chicks out of 19 and a few I helped. This time I am hand turning, and now getting to the end, I am afraid to try to hatch without cartons... Please you silkie experts, give me some tips. Thank you in advance.
