I started hatching in January and had excellent hatches. February was good too, but March and April have been 50% hatches. I do not think it is a bacterial issue as I am good to clean my machines. I have been breaking out my unpiped eggs and I find lots of different things that don't add up to anything specific. I am in the process of checking all my thermometers to make sure something isn't running high or low. I use dual mercury thermometers, one has a wick and water reservoir - the other regular. I think one must be off -

I went out this evening to move eggs from incubator to hatcher. All were clear. Yikes!

:) Had the wrong eggs. Found the ones that need to go to the hatcher. 77 of 97 still good.
