Okay, I had 18 eggs in a LG with humidity of 25 to 30% humidity from day 1-18. Then I put in my hatcher with 60% humidity. Only half hatched. I noticed the outter membrane was dry on all. The inner membrane was really sticky and some of the "whites" (amnion) was dry or really sticky. Some of my birds did not fluff out. I had to wash them several times to get the "mouse" like stuff off the down. The last chick I had to complete help out. He was really stuck, well not stuck like dry but stuck sticky kind of like peanut butter sticks to bread. Wet, but stuck. So in your opinion should I run more humidity during the first 18 days? Did they loose too much moisture? I had the humidity up to 75% trying to help the last one out. Do you think when I ran up the humidity I drowned the other chicks? Just looking for opinions from others in order to do better next time. I hatched 1 white silkie, 1 Large Fowl Cochin, 1 MF d'uccle, and 6 serama/silkie mix. By the way, my first hatch I put in my hatcher for all 20 days and had a good hatch rate and no stuck chicks. Humidity was at 50% most of the time until day 18. Thanks.
