    What causes Chicks to stick to the inside of the egg and not hatcht? I have had that problem the last two times i have hatched eggs. Not all of them stick, but I have two or three each time. [​IMG]

    humidity and sometimes just the eggs too and weather. The humidity outside affects your hatches too.

    The humidity has been low outside, but have made sure there has been water in the incubator the whole time. My incubator is in my garage, and the tempature of my garage stays about 70 degrees all the time. Would that have something to do with this problem?​
