okay, so i am on my third hatch in four weeks with my cochin eggs and every hatch i candle on day 18 and all the eggs are ALIVE & MOVING. day 19, nothing day 20, half of the eggs pip, zip and hatch i candle on day 21, and all the other eggs are DEAD! (yes ive been incubating for 7 years i can tell when an embryo is dead) its not the temps its not the humidity, i checked i cant figure out why this keeps happening and im getting frusturated it just happened to me today i got four out of eight hatching and i just know the other four are dead so i have a few questions 1. Does anyone else experience this? 2. anybody know how to prevent this 3. i have three serama eggs due next week, i really dont want this to happen to them, i have a broody serama on 6 eggs that are a week behind my bator seramas, im thinking on day 17 i should put the three bator seramas under her and let her hatch them and then move them to the brooder once they hatch, and then let her hatch her 6 and keep them the following week, unless somebody knows how to avoid these fatalities im wondering if i should lower the temp on the last few days, or maybe its just a cochin thing... any thoughts?
