    Hi all! Ok here is my deal. I had six Blue Andalusion X Silver Spangeled Hamburg eggs. One adorable baby hatched and is still healthy. He had no problems with anything. The other five eggs never hatched. Three were rotten. Two had full grown chicks inside, but they died before pipping. What happened to these guys?

    It could be so many different reasons,...temps not right, humidity not right,...bacteria,..infertility,....sometimes you just have a bad hatch.

    I have a Little Giant with a fan and turner. I have heard that they aren't very good compared to the Hovabators, but we have gotten good hatches out of our Little Giant before.
