    I felt like my tiny DASP incubator wasn't cooperating with me or I was doing too much during the first 8 serama eggs I set so for the second 10 I set I borrowed a used foam incubator that ended up very screwy. Maybe I just didn't know how to do a foamy. They went back in my tiny DASP instead out of frustration.[​IMG]
    I went with the dry hatching, it worked better for me as my humidity didn't dip below 40% without water & I had more fetal development further along. I also only candled the 10th day & right before lock down, other than initially when I received them in the mail.
    I took the 19th & 20th day off from work to be home & silly egg hatched after I got home midnight on day 22

    I had saddle air cells in a few & actually the one that hatched was the worst of the saddle eggs, but he's beautiful...after he got fluffy[​IMG]
