    welcome to BYC.. [​IMG]

    there are several people that wrote that they have 100% hatch rate.

    good hatch rate usually happen by good handling start from the hens and roo fertility, food and stress level, to handling eggs and incubation system (temp, RH, etc.).

    but, there's no 100% warranty of 100% hatching..

    keep in my mind that good handling results in good result. [​IMG]
