    I put the eggs in my circulated air,automatic turner on oct 31st 2am. I left them until day 18 in automatic turner. My humidity was high. Temp was 100. They started moving around in the eggs. Started hearing chirping and one finally broke through. It was 24 hours and no progression .we broke rule #1 dont open the incubator. We tried to help hatch. We found the membrane a nit dry. All we did was remove 90% of the shell. He seemed to be happy and scooting out of the membrane. I found him 6 hours later dead. Anyone can tell what hapend in the pictures?
