I am really feeling down although very happy to have at least 5 cute little Blue Slate poults. I had candled at 10 days and removed 10 eggs that were clear or had died. The rest were doing so well. When I cracked them open today they had stopped developing probably around day 20 or so. I keep trying to think what would have happened to all 25 and yet have 5 (thank goodness) very healthy and vigorous poults. Any ideas? The temperature was constant as I checked it, of course, every time I turned the eggs. Last time I put in 24 eggs and we had 13 hatch. I don't expect to have a perfect hatch but did expect a little better than this. Some eggs I washed and most I did not. It didn't seem to matter. Thank you for listening to me moan and groan. You are always so great at listening and understanding. Please be kind as I am being hard enough on myself trying to figure out what I did wrong.
