x2!!!! Just did this two weeks ago for the first time. Almost everyone that pipped did nothing else for almost 24 hrs. I was a nervous wreck, then all of a sudden 1 came out, then 2, they came out so quick I missed a couple just running to the grocery store. Ironically, the first egg I saw moving was the last to hatch, almost 2 full days late. Don't give up hope. As for the humidity, I did that all wrong too. Mine skyrocketed to 85 & 90% during the whole hatch. I kept opening the windows to dry it out, the hatched chicks were drenched, it was ridiculous. They all hatched and are great (1 never hatched, but didn't develop right, so hatch conditions weren't a factor).
NOTE: I am in no way saying to hatch as I hatched, just making the point that even in the worst of conditions success is possible. LOL!!
