Heather/Carey, I would like to ask you for some more info if you can like the size of incubator, size of egg container, how it was heated, air circulation in the incubator? Also what you consider moist vermiculite? Pictures would be great. Sounds like they may have been too wet, but there could be lots of reasons! I would not mist the eggs. Slightly drier is always better then too wet. They should get moisture from the air from high humidity and should be able to dimple/deflate in the last few weeks and lose some water. If the egg container is too wet they cannot lose the necessary moisture.

If they were leaking fluid they were probably too wet.

Were the partially formed babies alive, what made you cut them open? Smell?

The slugs/duds could also be due to the male or breeding timing issues compared to ovulation.

Your temps are fine if 31C = 87.8F!

Just my interpretation could be lots of other causes!

Don't give up you are closer then you were last year!
