howdy Guys, I’m hoping y’all can help me figure out my mystery. I have tried both wet and dry incubation in two different incubators and have had the same problem. During wet incubation, I kept the incubator, a forced air, at 40-50% humidity and 60-65% at hatch. In my dry inchbation run, my most recent, I added no water and it stayed 15-25% the whole incubation and I bumped it to 50% for hatch. I had 11 hatch, and 8 pipped internally through the membrane then never hatched. What could cause this? It happened both times, wet and dry incubation, with forced air and still air. I don’t understand why I’m losing almost half of my hatch on the final day of incubation. Any input is appreciated.
