If this is 4 th day of lockdown you may still have a graet hatch .Have u raised humidity .My last hatch didn't start till 4 th day of lockdown . And I had 41 out of 48 hatch .Raise humidity up to at least 65 percent

I think I stuffed up by putting water in the bowl of the incubator ;-( the humidity here inside my house is like over 90 so I'm thinking it was too hot ;-( One egg hatched last night and I've just candled the rest but no movement inside ill leave them another day and check again tomorrow :-)

Get you a Hygometer I am sure I spelled that wrong .Any way they dont cost at lot .And then no need to guess My curret hatch was 100 percent 13 out of 13.Look in air cell and see if you see a beak.At day 21. Tou can't see a lot of movement.But I am able to see beak after it breaks thru the membrane into aircell

I'm a bit worried about the little chick that hatched. She only drinks if I put my finger in the water and she doesn't seem to be eating. Also she cries alot I'm worried she'll die what can I do to help her? I'm trying to get hold of another baby chick but I'm not having any luck finding one ;-(
