What Happened???


In the Brooder

I had some chicks in the brooder and we watched this thing like a "hawk." Poor illustration... I know...

However, right at the hatch date, everything was going great, yet four eggs didn't peep...at all, even though we had candled at 14 days and all seemed well. We left them in the bator for four extra days (hope against hope) and nothing! We took them outside today and cracked the eggs open and they were all fully developed, but they were all dead...

Any ideas as to what may have happened? FYI: we have a still air LG and we kept our eyes on the temp and humidity for 21 days... we really tried...

Also, this is not our first hatch....
I wish I had some answers for you, but I had the same thing happen and don't know why. It was my first hatch attempt, so I'm going to assume I did something wrong and just don't know what.

Hope somebody else can give us both some answers. I'm sorry for your loss, I know how it feels to wait all that time and be disappointed.
