I'm really concerned about what has happened in my past 2 hatches. We are getting shipped eggs, having about 30% of the go into lockdown, and then have 2 eggs hatch. With the first batch, we had 7 in lockdown (2 hatched) and this past batch we had 11 in lockdown, and 2 hatched. I kept a spreadsheet this time, so I have a better handle on what is going on statistically. Out of the 11 eggs this time, we had: 2 hatches, on day 20 and day 21 2 late quitters 3 dead in the shell with no pip, and not in position to pip 4 that either DID pip internally, or were trying to pip internally of those last 4, 2 of them (the ones that DID internally pip) the yolk was mostly absorbed. Humidity has been good (30-40% for the beginning, and then 65-75% during lockdown), the chicks weren't shrink wrapped, and we only canded on day 10 and day 18. Temps never went over 101, or under 98.6, and 101 wasn't for more than an hour or 2, AND that series of spikes was during days 13-16, NOT at the end. Why are HALF of the eggs that are going into lockdown just not making it? I cannot figure out what is going on, and DH is ready to be done with incubating if this is the trend we're going to have. I understand that *some* chicks just don't make it out of the shell, but HALF??? HALF?! With our first batch there were 3 (of 7) that were also positioned to hatch, and didn't. I don't get it. Help me please!
