Hatch help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I had eggs that were to go on lockdown on Saturday. I opened the incubator to increase the humidity, I did the 30% then increase to 50% this time, only my second hatch, when I opened it one egg had already pipped, I help it hatch late Saturday night as it wasn't making any progress and had already absorbed the yolk, the humidity dropped back down while this chic was still in there. I took the chic out last night, the second egg hasn't pipped, I increased the humidity back up. Today is the actual hatch date but I am concerned with the humidity fluctuating, should I do anything else?

Put a small dish with water and a sponge in it, in the incubator to help bump the humidity. Once they've pipped there is a small risk that they can dry out and become stuck in the egg and this is when you need to keep the humidity high enough.

The humidity is back up, the second egg hasn't pipped.
