    i have 4 of 12 that pipped, some more than others that seem to have died. hatch day was sunday, so i opened the one that was most pipped, about the size of a dime, and it was dead. there is no movement in the others, that i can see. my question is, what causes this? my temp is solid at 99.5 and humidity is at 54%. the room temp is 85 degrees. im stumped, i thought low humidity caused this. alot more in the bator and i dont want to loose them if i can help it. if it matters, im using a dickie, 3 tray, with a hatcher.
