I have a question -
I was checking the last 4 eggs (as I read) and when I picked one up it was pipped face down, kinda in the middle of the egg (no where near the marked air cell) I had no idea this egg was pipped because it pipped on the plastic mesh "ground". I quickly put it back down, pip up though. I also added a wet cloth to increase the humidity, was at 65% not is at 72%. Is there anything else I should do. The pipped part does look like it is drying out, a little brown near one spot. And I do hear chirping from inside the egg.
At this moment I am just waiting and giving it time. Thank you for any advice anyone.
sounds like you got it under control
