    I'm getting a pair of Cayugas on the 30th the female is currently laying fertile eggs. I've tried to hatch them but they died on the last day. Any tips on hatching Cayugas? And is there anything I need to know about them? All I have is pekins.

    EDITED: for spelling.

    There's nothing special with Cayugas when it comes to incubation. What kind of incubator are you using and what is the temperature and humidity you have it set at? There might be some problem with your incubator settings, or it can even be something genetic. But we can try to help you figure it out. :)

    I'm using a hova-bator temp says around 99.5-100.1 humidity stays around 40% during incubation and on day 26 the humidity goes up to 60%. I only killed one batch I had 3 pekins hatch.
