    Broody not in lockdown, day 20

    My banty broody was off her nest today for awhile eating and drinking and it’s day 20! Does this mean she thinks the eggs aren’t viable? She got right back up on the nest when she was done but I’ve always read lockdown starts on day 18 and they stop getting up. It’s my first time with a broody...

    Wondering if anyone has done this?

    I have a PETSPIONEER humidifier I have been using for my veiled chameleon. I have some eggs in lockdown and was having trouble upping the humidity so I decided to cut a hole near the bottom of the bator (eggs are elevated in a container so they are not getting directly showered in fog) and push...

    Internal pip?

    Does this count as an internal pip? Should I start lockdown now? I wanted to post a video of the duck that can be seen wriggling inside the egg but I can only show pictures. You can see the little bump is the beak. I think maybe it hasn’t broken through yet.

    Advice on Goose eggs nearing hatch in a Brinsea Mini

    I have 3 Goose eggs with that I began incubating on the 11th of April. It was a complete experiment, something to keep me occupied during quarantine- I wasn't sure of the age of the eggs or if they were fertilised.

    Do I really have to increase humidity and lock down on day 18?

    Our eggs were initially at 50-55% RH for first 6-7 days. After candling and realizing there is almost no air cell growth, I decreased RH to 40% and it did not help much, then to 26% (with no water at the bottom of incubator at all). It is day 18 now and air cells is still not where they suppose...
