    What would cause my chicks to die in the eggs a day or two before they should hatch ? The temp seems to be stable at 100.5 or so , but one day it was very hot out side and hey got up to 106 . I still had about 12 eggs hatch after that . I also lost maybe 10 that verse already cracking out . I'm sure low humidity got them . They were stuck to the shell .
