    How do you calculate your hatch rate? Do you count clears & early quitters or just what makes it into lockdown? TIA [​IMG]

    Hatch rate- Those that make it to hatching
    Fertility rate- All eggs that are fertile, including quitters.

    I do not calculate clears in the hatch rate. I calculate all fertile eggs including the early quitters.
