    i am having bad results to hatch my Californian quail eggs
    they are is a Rcom Suro full auto
    i have the humidity at 40 and the temp at 38
    the eggs are not hatching and whee i open them they seem to have died a few day before the hatch date but
    they eggs have a lot of liquid in them
    its very humid in my basement so is this the problem
    i have checked the temp with 2 digital thermometers and its correct
    any other ideas PLEASE

    I would make sure my air vents are open, and try hatching with the eggs in a upright position. Think about putting them in a egg carton when you lock them down. 40% is good for incubation, shoot for 65+ for lock down and hatching.... Good luck... Bill
