Ok, I've had two successful hatches. I define them as successful because I actually hatched some healthy chicks, but only six in total out of probably 40 eggs. The incubator temp and humidity seems to stabalize very well and I stay on top of it. I have a forced air hovabator with an automatic egg turner. NOW I've purchased some eggs for what is hopefully a very good hatch. Especially because these are auction chicks that I really want! Four breeds. I'd appreciate any input on how to improve the hatch... Last time I kept the bator at around 45% for 18 days and 60% for three. One pipped bird died hours after pipping. One chirped and rocked, then died. Four made it wonderfully, but I was so freaked out I helped them with in a few hours of pipping. No problems there. The rest of the eggs didn't seem to fully develop, but one was pretty far along when I opened it up. Whole chick, but very yolky. I live in a very arid southwest climate. Like I said, according to my hygrometers I've been pretty stable w/ temp and humidity, with occassional deviations. I might have been looking at things wrong b/c it was indoor/outdoor and a little confusing with two dif temps. I think I will get two new ones and put in different spots in the incubator and make sure they are the right kind. Any helpful advice before I start later this week????
