    Two excellent sites that list the possible causes of hatching failures and early chick death.

    http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/aa204
    In depth analysis of everything that can go wrong.

    http://animalscience.ucdavis.edu/Avian/pfs32.htm
    Another fantastic site that includes photos to help you identify what went wrong.


    Hope this helps anyone that is having trouble with their hatches identify what went wrong.
