    So I had 24 eggs set all looked good at day 10.
    Had 8 hatch. 1 hatched a day early, 4 hatched on time, and 3 hatched a day late. The one that hatched a day early died 36 hrs later. the other 7 are good.
    Broke open the unhatched eggs and it looks like they all quit around day 17-18. Temps too low???? The air cells looked right, so I don't think it was a humidity issue. Anyone else ever experience this? I should of had a pretty good hatch, they were all formed, and perfect looking, just quit.

    Hey thanks, I think I know what happened now. Temps too low, humidity too high. I think I need a new Thermometer now.
