    they may have been too moist then. I had that problem once, I cut back on the water and had a much better hatch.

    Leave them and hope for the best. What is your humidity at?

    I personally haven't done incubating, but I would think that you just continue as you would if those 3 hadn't died. Btw, sorry for your losses, very disappointing. [​IMG]
