    I just set out about 30 eggs I got from McMurray today. I can join you.

    What do you think went wrong with your first two batches? What are you doing differently this time?

    I think it was the humidity. The chicks were fully developed then died without pipping.

    I made a styrafoam incubator this time. Last two times I used cardboard.
