I somehow broke my chain without hatching something different? I hatched a party of pidgey (which is what I was hunting) and suddenly my chain was broken. I noticed since my chain disappeared on my profile and when I checked the poke radar page, it said the radar was turned off. I can't figure out what I did to break the chain. If I did do something to break it, I don't mind restarting, but I don't think I did anything wrong. Is there any way of breaking a chain without hatching something different?

If it is turned off, it could also mean you hatched a Shiny. For both cases you should get a notification. Maybe check your Pokeradar history if there's a Shiny

No notification and the radar says the last shiny was hatched in January.

When did you buy Premium?
I found a notification on January 30th, congratulating you on the shiny and that you'll need new batteries for the next hunt.
This is an indication that, at least 10 days ago, you didn't have shiny.

Your pokéradar also says the Pidgey hunt started today. Were you hunting Pidgey in the beginning of February?

I bought premium a few hours after it last expired (16 days ago according to notifications). I don't recall hatching any eggs when I didn't have premium and I've hatched a different shiny without the chain breaking. I hatched another party which is why it says I started a hunt today. I've been hunting pidgey since last August. I do see the notification saying that the battery reset, but I don't see why it would have broken then either.

Battery reset = no active premium.

You mentioned a few hours between premium running out and buying a new one, so it's possible a shiny hatched in those few hours.

I guess that must have happened. Oh well.
