I just finished up my 2nd hatch and my results were WORSE than the first time!! My first hatch I started with 23 eggs and at day 18 I only had 8 left, but of those 8, 5 hatched. I candled the darn things nearly everyday, and even during the hatch I had to lift the lid a bit to seperate a chick that was having his bum picked at and bleeding. This time I started with 14 eggs and at day 18 (which actually ended up being day 17, oops) I had 10 and only 5 hatched. I checked all 5 of the unhatched eggs and they hadn't even absorbed the yolk. This time, I only candled 4 times during the whole hatch, my temps & humidity were fine, I put them in egg cartonsI didn't lift the lid during the hatch and my results sucked!!! Now mind you, I have 5 VERY cute little babies, 3 Blue sizzles and 2 salmon favorelles, but I am so bummed that I lost so many. The only thing I can think of that was not right, was I miscounted my days and stopped turning on day 17 instead of 18 and increased the humidity on day 17 instead of 18 and for the first 24 hours after increasing my humidity it was running about 76% and then between 69%-73% the rest of the time. Would that have caused such drastic results??
