Hooboy. I lost my place. Anyway Thanks and Hi!
So, too much humidity causes curled toes. Apparently I had it backwards somehow. I'm going to have to correct that! It does explain a lot and why the issue is appearing as the weather is getting colder.
On the bright side the hatcher is giving me great feedback on its temperature and humidity. The industrial sensor is leagues ahead of the reptile terrarium temp / humidity thing we're using on the incubator.
Unfortunately it's dark right now so photos won't turn out too well, but the itty bitty Silkie egg from one of our young pet silkies has juuust started to hatch. It's her first baby! Another Silkie x bitzer is hatching along with it too. Should be interesting to see what this one is like. One of the recent ones has black skin. I mean beyond Silkie black. It's extraordinary!
