Full term deaths.

I've had 4 fully developed chicks....dead in a row. Hatch date comes and nothing. I peep in the air cell to find a dead chick.

Both incs are LG. My temp is good, humidity is 35%, turner works. Everything seems like last year and we had great hatches. Only thing different is the chickens, these are BCM.

At lockdown I move them to a different incubator. I have 60-70% humidity and it seems like its killing them. For the life of me I cant figure out what is wrong. Diet is good, hens are happy and healthy. Bacteria? Ive bleached and washed everything twice.

Any other suggestions? Anyone experienced something like this and figured out the problem?

Bleach is a no no... way too harsh, also make sure that you wash the eggs before you put them in there. other than that it could just be genetics... If you truly meant 35% humiditym then thats way off it needs to be 65% through the greater portion of the incubating process
