    Hello all, I'm new to this forum. I have a question and was hoping maybe someone could help. I have a really good hatch rare with eggs I get from other flocks. However my own eggs don't do good at all. My chickens are well fed and taken care of and lay really good. Any ideas?

    More information on why they don't do well would help out a great deal.

    Rooster(s) are obviously a huge variable to the equation.

    My eggs are fertile. They develop and seem to be doing great. It's hatching time when I lose them. Either from piping then failure to zip or just never piping.

    Thanks. I checked out the link and it seems really useful. I will double my feeds for the proper nutrition and also my birds for any signs of ailment. I will keep in touch. Thanks again.
