I know this site is littered with similar threads, but...UPDATE NUMBER 2 - Page 2

We have a chicken!!!!!!

 

And two more are pipping.

 

Question...one of the pipping ones seems quite low and (they're in egg cartons) is kinda being blocked by the carton. Should I turn it a little or leave it?

all depends on your humidity and how fast your humidity and temp recovers in the incubator. What is your humidity running at?

45% (not sure why it didn't show up?)

I like to have my lockdown humidity 65 to 70 percent to keep them from drying out too much and getting sticky.

Consider quickly putting in a very warm damp sponge and at the same time, taking the low pipper out of the carton and laying it down pip side up.
