    The day you set the eggs is day 0. With temp of 101, I'm assuming you're using a still air, if not, that's too warm. I LOVE dry incubating and I add not a drop of water until lockdown. Annie-Belle and I send vibes of chicken happiness your way. This is her trying on her new diaper. She fell asleep.
