    Yesterday was day 21. I had 22 eggs (candled on day 18, they were all moving) in the hatcher. Yesterday, 7 hatched out just fine, 1 hatched out but seems to have something wrong with it's leg (also had membrane over it's head). The 7 that were doing just fine were so active that they were really knocking the other eggs around. We ended up removing the chicks, but we haven't seen so much as a pip out of the remaining 14 eggs. The ones that hatched were 2 RIR, 1 Welsummer, 2 barred Rocks, 3 Buff Orpingtons. The remaining eggs are more of these same breeds. The humidity level in the hatcher never dropped below 67% while we were removing the chicks. Should I be worried about the remaining eggs?
