    I've had chickens and a small homestead for years my husband and my kids and I recently moved to Virginia I just tried my first hatching a few weeks back with not much success out of 16 eggs only to hatch three days apart this particular hatching I put out 12 eggs I had one hatch on day 18 it is now day 23 and nothing else has hatched I'm using the ProSeries digital incubator model 4250 by farm innovators not a super expensive machine but not one of the cheapies either not sure what I'm doing wrong the entire time my temperature said 99.5-100. Humidity for the first 18 days was hovering around between 50 and 60 on day 18 I soon as that check pipped I bumped the humidity up to you 70 So I don't understand why I have such a horribly low hatch right what is going on ? I do not wash the eggs before I put them in the incubator Please help

    You can check out the articles in the Learning Center to see if that helps:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks

    Or you can post on this forum, someone there might be able to answer your concerns:

    Good luck!
