    My first two died while hatching. Any ideas why? The third one hatched just fine. Its a spritely little guy. I have three more that have begun hatching. But I'm hoping that if its something that can be fixed maybe I can save them.

    There are a lot of things it could be. You are the one that incubated them and are looking at them, but it’s not always easy figuring out what happened. The best you can do is to try to narrow it down.

    I think this is a pretty good troubleshooting guide. Hope you can figure it out.

    Congratulations on the one and best of luck on the rest.
