This is my first experience trying to hatch out my own eggs. It has been a steep learning curve! On day 20, two eggs pipped, one on the small end of the egg. The one that was improperly positioned had a fairly good size hole made, so I decided not to open the bator to do anything with it. The second egg just rested until last night. I got up to check on the eggs in the middle of the night, and the second one was completely out of the egg. By this time, I wasn't seeing any more movement out of the first egg. I didn't feel like I should open the incubator to remove it, as now another egg had pipped. When I got up again in the morning, the chick that had already hatched out was dead, and the other chick had hatched out. Not long after that, the second chick that had hatched out died. Seeing no other pips in the remaining eggs, I opened up the lid and removed both dead chicks, the unhatched dead one, and the egg shells. Any idea what caused the chicks to die? My best guess is bacterial infection from the first dead chick that never hatched out. The chicks that did get out of their shells looked fully formed and no yolk or blood on them. They died before they even dried off. Any thoughts on what went wrong, and how to avoid it in the future? I don't hold out any hope for the remaining eggs still in the incubator, but I will wait a couple of days to be sure (it is just now day 21).
