12 eggs were due to hatched on Feb 26th but out of them only 5 hatched with health chicks. I was surprised because I candled them all the way through and they were all active. So I opened couple of them on 23rd day and found out dead fully grown chicks. Can any body suggest where I am going wrong. temperature remains between 99 -100 degree and humidity is between 58 - 65 %. I am using two separate home made ice box incubators one for the incubation period and the other for hatching. I am very upset because a dozen more eggs are due to hatch in couple of days.
