    I have had the same problem with all my hatches (3 so far this year.) I was using a still air bator (little giant) but I plan on installing a computer fan before I try again. I'm pretty sure my problems were with my humidity being too high.

    Can you give any more info, like what kind of temp/humidity readings you were getting throughout the process. What kind of bator you're using. I won't have any answers as I'm new to the whole bator thing, but I'm sure the more experienced people on here will be able to offer more help with more info.
