Can someone explain what happened to my unhatched chicks? I had two fully-formed chicks that did not pip out and died inside the shell. The eggs were a little on the small side, so did they not have room to use their beaks? The humidity was sort of wack. It was reading 40% on day 19, so I poured in more water and it went up to 80%! When I did have one zip out, it was all sticky wet from the humidity. Was that what also killed the others? I used a Genesis 1588 with automatic egg turner (which was removed on Day 18). Only 3 eggs hatched out of 12. This was my first hatch ever.
