    Okay all you experts out there,
    I have an awesome Dickey cabinet that usually gets me as close to perfect as possible on my hatches, but the last few times I have noticed that my chicks are getting so big in the shell that they don't have room to turn and get out. I'm losing several chicks in the hatch. They are literally STUFFED in there. I'm guessing this is related to humidity, so let me know which way I need to adjust.
