    me too, I only have 2 eggs that are only 2 days behind the other 21. I locked down 8 hours late to try to help the issue.
    But now at 20.5 days, 9 are already hatched. I'm not concerned about the humidity but I'm afraid I'll have to pull these early bloomers before all the late bloomers are out.

    the reason i added the 4 eggs was because i candel at day 5 and 4 were not fertile so i had those naked neck eggs and i load them because i have a broddy that its due to hatch the day those 4 eggs were suposto hatch but the stupid hen one day gop up and never went back to the nest so at night i put her in the next and what was my surpriced in the morning when i went to check on her omg she had broken all the eggs [​IMG] so now i have those egggs that i dont know what to doi was thinking maybe put them in a bag inside the incubator so humidity won go in?? maybe??? but im thinking what about circulated air? right? mmm what do i do??

    Unless you have another incubator to move them to, about all you can do is hope for the best with them.
