So I have AC eggs in the incubator right now...... Did you guys do lock down at day 18 or at first pip?

I check the air cells. If they look a bit small, I give them another day before I up the humidity. When I saw a few internal pips, then I felt it was time.

I always do day 18 though mine have been consistently hatching a day late. I think I need to up my temps a bit lol

Too humid by you? I do dry incubation and average 28% here in central jersey.... Last time I did lockdown at day 18 and had 2 live chicks out of the 6 expected. The others never pipped. Thinking I should try something different this time

Sorry to hear that.  :hugs   

 

Definitely no running dry here - the eggs would be desiccated certain times of the year!
