I would like if I am doing something wrong.
I put 18 eggs in an incubator. Did everything right up to the point where, when they started to hatch.
6 hatched out, 2 of them had deformed legs, which I had to put down. 2 started to come out of the shell but died then. the other 10 died in the shell.
So what could I be doing wrong.

When there are problems with the hatch such as leg issues and dying in the shell or shortly after it is normally caused from too much or too little humidity during the incubation.

That happened the first time I incubated, I was recommended not to do still air (which is what I did that time), the next time I installed a fan and there were no problems, also the temperature was more controlled
