    Ok I just did a candle on my eggs since they are two days overdue. Most of my eggs look like they are on day 11 or 12, when in actuality they are on day 23 going on 24. I've looked back at my log book. This should have been a picture perfect hatch! Never no temp spikes always at 99.5, not one humidity problem did a dry hatch at 40 to 50%. Lockdown i've been at 99.5 temp. and 70 to 75% humidity. So what's happened?

    I opened up two of the eggs tonight that were definitly bad, and they look like they died around day 6 or so. Any ideas? I NEED INPUT! This is my first failed hatch. All my others have been 100% BUT they have hatched a few days late. I haven't tossed any out yet. I don't see any movement, and they are not solid black like they should be!
