    Well there is so much info needed from your set-up to try and help.

    What kind of incubator are you using---name and model number?

    How many eggs did you set to get the 1 chick each of the 2 times?
    Did you candle the eggs to see if they are developing after a week or 2 of incubation?
    How did/do you brood them----set-up?
