    I am sorry you are having trouble.:hugs
    Did you try to use something like coconut oil to keep the shell moist? I am wondering if this will help if you should have the same trouble with a future chick.

    What kind of bator do you have?

    What did you do/what happened just before these changes?
    Did you open it?
    Add something to it?
