    Are you keeping them clean, both the eggs and the baby chicks? You should wash your hands with anti bacterial soap every time you touch or go into the incubator and every time you touch something in or around the brooder

    And the babes will need lots of warmth when they are hatched and clean food and water.
    The chicks will tell you If they are too hot or too cold but you should atart at 95 degrees ferenheit.
