I catch up and am too tired to do more, of course the fact that I fell asleep in my chair for an hour and a half did not help. Off to bed.
@Sally Sunshine I still have the brace. I am still carrying a cane for uneven surfaces and stairs. I hope you feel better when you wake up.post #47676 of 1576312/5/16 at 10:41pmQuote:Originally Posted by Fuzzybutts
Wow, I was just here this afternoon talking about CBs and stuff. I will have to go back and read all the posts after I get stuff figured out here. My trusty Hovabator is starting to go wonky on me tonight, my eggs will be on day seven tomorrow. It has been spot on this whole time, except when I cook, or shower the humidity rises. In case you don't remember, I left my farm after a break up, and I am now living in a studio apartment, so any little thing I do changes things! (I am still waiting on my name to be changed to studio chick). I wanted to get a new wafer and thought I had ordered it from incubator warehouse, come to find out, I did not press the last button that said "place order" I figured that out a couple of days ago so hopefully it will be here Monday. This is my first time hatching Silkies, the couple of eggs I sneaked a peak at looked to have pretty small air cells. They were local eggs, the guy said he hatches them along with his Orps and told me not to make any changes with how I hatch (I have only hatched Orpingtons). But now I am wondering if I should lower the humidity even more, since I am in such a small place and anything I do seems to effect it. I also just noticed it is 12:30 am, that means it is officially day seven, I could candle. But I can't get the temp up now, so I don't want to push it
It's obviously a different group this late at night...I would have had 20 answers earlier todaypost #47677 of 1576312/5/16 at 10:47pmpost #47678 of 1576312/5/16 at 10:48pmQuote:
Sorry I shouldn't answer since I'm still a new hatcher, but from what i've read...humidity really isn't a set number the first 18 days. You just don't want it to drop below the 20's. I can't imagine small changes would create any issues. Just keep an eye on the air cells. Heat is different. Is your heat jumping around?Mom to a BEAUTIFUL little girl, 1 dog, 2 cats, LOTS of fish and an ever growing chicken flock.

Yes, my temps have been jumping around tonight. I totally did not mean to sound like a *****, I am just tired. Thank you for the input
