I have 2 incubators now, both the same type: Little Giant still air egg incubator 9300 and they hold up to 46 eggs each. I use one for the incubating and the other for lockdown. I'm not thinking it's the incubator's fault but maybe something of my own or the parent genes. The first hatching I had 9 duck eggs and 8 chicken. Out of the ducks, every egg piped and hatched, even if some needed help after 30 hours. For the chickens, only 3 piped and 2 hatched leaving the rest never piping or hatching and dying. I had 5 more eggs to hatch out this week so I moved them into the lockdown incubator (it was cleaned and at the right humidity and temp) yet so far I've had 3 eggs not pip and die in the shell (will I ever get used to that smell?). Every one I opened and looked at the chicken inside was perfect yet it was covered in green. What can I do to help the last 2 hatch and then the other 10 in another incubator to hatch when the time comes? The other one I added those eggs on 3/5 so they should be ready near the end of the month. I'm just disheartened because my ducks hatched out and are great, as are the other 2 chicks but I've had so many unexplained deaths.
