    So today is day 21 and a one chick out of four was zipping and just ready to start push and break free but all of the sudden a bunch of bubbles stated to form and I think it drowned the chick. Its peak was sticking out of the shell slightly and had bubbles all around it. What I'm I doing wrong. This is my fifth attempt
    1- 10 eggs and nothing. hovabator
    2- 8 eggs two hatched and are pretting big now reptipro
    3- 16 eggs one pipped but also died reptipro
    4- 9 eggs one hatched and died a week later reptipro
    5- In progress started with 9 and four made it to lockdown reptipro

    Also most eggs I recieved never develop but the ones that do always make it to lockdown. My incubator hold temp very well and my humidity stays pretty constant at %35 and lockdown %70

    Do they have oxygen? Holes in the bator to let air into the bator. Mine has plugs that need to be removed to increase the air flow.

    My incubator doesnt have plugs but I do open it to let fresh oxygen in. Humidity returns to %70 very quickly
