    Hatching eggs a lot of fun! The most important things to remember are to make sure you turn them all at least three times daily, and make sure your humidity and temperature levels are correct. It is very important to raise the humidity level the last three days of hatching(the same days you stop turning them as well!) It should be raised to 65% or higher. Most of all remember to enjoy it. Worry is the number one problem in all hatches! Happy Hatching!
