I am having problems with a hatch. I've got three dozen chicken eggs and about a dozen quail in the incubator. I've had no problems until now. Quail should have hatched Saturday and chicks on Sunday. The quail haven't done anything. Two chicks hatched alone, but one didn't pull in the yolk sac. Three more pipped on Sunday, but didn't get any farther. I helped two of them out today, but none of them had absorbed their yolk sac. The other eggs have not done anything. Temp has been consistent at 100 and humidity around 60%. This is a cabinet incubator with an automatic turner. What am I doing wrong? This is the first time I have had so much trouble. Two weeks ago I hatched quail in this same incubator and they were fine.
