Are any of your unhatched Welsummers showing signs of coming out?

Day 16 and babies are very active. How does on add humidity to an incubator after lock down and how many vents should be open (my incu has two big and two small vents). Thank you

Well, two of my little silkie crosses hatched. =) I am very excited. The third egg has pipped, and the final egg isn't doing anything. I am still hopeful.

 

One silkie mix is black with yellow, but the other one came out silver. Lovely! 

 

Humidity is 72% and seems perfect for hatching. Temps are about 100.
