Why are my eggs not hatching?

Poor results in hatching are commonly caused by the improper control of temperature or humidity. When the temperature or humidity is too high or too low for a long period of time, the normal growth and development of the embryo is affected.

Can I stop turning eggs on day 17?

Many people find that hand turning every 6 to 8 hours to be the “sweet spot.” If you do not turn the eggs, the tiny embryo can stick to the shell membrane and may die.

How do you tell if a chick has died in the egg?

Candling involves shining a light against the egg to see if there is a form with veins inside, if there is then the chick is alive. The float test involves placing the egg in lukewarm water. If the egg floats with the sack side up or the chick inside moves then the chick is likely alive.
