    I squirt the bottom half, water tray and screen out real good with the water hose, and blow the chick fuzz out oif the top half with the air hose, put it back together, let it stabalize and put eggs in it the next day.

    I recommend vinegar and water 50/50. Cheap and works well and is non toxic!!

    Yeah I had good/great hatches for my first 2 clutches. Then on hatch 3, I did an zero hatch. Only thing i can think of was the windex.

    Bummer! Unless you had a lot of Windex residue, like a real strong ammonia smell in your bator I wouldn't think that was the cause of your zero hatch.
