I am using a gqf sportsman incubator. Yesterday was day 25 and we had 10 out of 80 hatch and a few partially out and dead. When moving eggs to the hatch tray should we put them in something different than the crates we use during incubation or leave them in? The temp is 99-100 humidity 57 and raised to 70 on the 21st day which is the day we moved them down. We do not candle them and just leave all the eggs in. We have 3 roosters and 18 hens. Averaging 16 eggs a day. Eggs are kept in the basement for 7 days and set at a 30° angle rotated every day. Any help would be appreciated.
