I'm sorry. What incubator were you using? Where did these eggs come from? What temp. and humidity was the incubator at? Where in your house was the incubator?

I was using broody bantam chickens 2 of them to try and hatch these eggs, eggs I got from a house in Reading in Hampshire uk - did travel to pick them up

The chickens did get up maybe a few times a day dust bathe once a day leave the eggs for a bit, eat/drink and stretch
They are new to egg hatching too

I haven't done a loooot of eggtopsies so my expertise is limited, but these look maybe day ~14? They're fully formed and down-covered but still quite small and nowhere near ready to hatch. It's an unusual time to lose so many seemingly at once, the first week and last few days are more common for losses, especially under a broody hen with no real danger of temperature spikes.
