    I have 8 eggs hatching (I hope [​IMG] ) Saturday the 22nd. I candled, and the air cells look huge. I have a LG 9200, no turner or fan. Have kept humidity around 55 to 60 %, mostly 60, except a few times I have woke up in the mornings and found it had dropped way down, due to my water evaporating during the night, which was immediately corrected. The air cells take up about 1/3 of the egg, especially on the Seramas. But I can see movement in most of them. OK, or should I increase the water, or add a sponge or wet sock, or something?

    Thanks, Shelly, My cells look even bigger, I think, but hopefully not too much bigger. Keeping fingers crossed.

    Thanks, Birdboy. Looked at your BYC webpage. You really have some nice looking chickens and chicks. Hatching a lotta little ones. What are you going to do with them all? Do you sell, or keep them all?
