I just confirmed that I lost 3 more blue/black eggs, and 3 of the lavender eggs that are in the hatcher. All three of the blue/black eggs were "shrink wrapped" when I opened them and the chicks were well developed. Two of the lavenders had quit developing somewhere in the last 7 days, and one was nicely developed but was also "shrink wrapped." Now "shrink wrapping" is usually due to a lack of humidity, however the humidity in my HB hatcher has been 60% or better since I started it up, and lately its been running around 80%. I've also taken out the fan so these eggs were completely in a 'still air' envrionment since Monday, with no air blowing directly on them. WHY am I loosing so many chicks to "Shrink Wrapping?" I'm getting severely tired of this. I've lost eggs to a shorted out LG, lost eggs due to low humidity in the cabinet incubator, lost eggs to a forced air fan, and now I'm still loosing eggs after changing everything that I can. I REALLY want to go in and crack this little lavender egg open because i dont want to loos it too, but I dont want to rush it. I know he is still alive because I can see him moving after candeling, and I can hear him tapping on the inside of the egg. And before you go off saying that I shouldn't have opened the bator, I know I shouldn't but this isn't my first rodeo and I can pretty much tell when eggs are dead. I just want to know why! I am so feeling like Sally Fields in Steele Magnolias.... "I'm so mad, I just want to know why, why, why..."
