    Congrats, I'd like to have enough humidity here to do that,, then again, no, I wouldn't!! LOL we don't get as much humidity in a year as you do in a day!

    Sweet Home Alabama!!
    I added about 1/8 cup of warm water last night for the hatch per the instructions for dry hatching.
    WE ARE ON DAY 20 AND HAVE 7 PIPPING OUT OF 35. All were living when we candled last night. We started with 39. Two quitters on day 14 and 2 empties day 7.

    Edited: To say the water has brought up the hummidity up to 65% where it has stayed 30-35%

    I CANT WAIT to see my MARANS!!!

    [​IMG] That boy's in a hurry!!! I hope Madison's Heart pips, too;) I like the dry method, too. The humidity I keep in the house isn't good for the house, but for me and hatching, it feels great! Congratulations:) Good choice of birds, too!
