    Did you candle them to determine fertility at 5 days or so? Did you candle them at 10-14 days to see if there were any deaths? How high do any unhatched eggs with chicks in, float in water? How did you check RH? Are there any dead full-grown chicks inside?

    Sounds like temperature quite a bit too low.
