I have been in and out of the room where the hatcher is to check on the temp and humidity (since its been a little bit of a challenge to get correct). Anyway, I went in to see how the temp was holding and see if the window had beeded up with water again and saw a pip!!! OH MY GOODNESS I'm so excited!!! Its one of the ones I set from my hens. I have two of those and 5 from a friend in there. Today is only day 19. Do I need to worry about it being early?

I do hope they hatch ok. All were moving and healthy yesterday when I moved them to the hatcher. How exciting!!!

I have incubated them in the Genesis 1588 preset up till yesterday. The hatcher is running a little low on temps. Around 96. I've been having a hard time getting it up to 99, but I'd rather it be just a little low than too high too.

Thanks!

Good luck and happy hatching. It'll dive you crazy watching that egg to see it do something. They love to pip and make you wait and wait and wait.

the reason I asked was if the temps day 1-18 were on the higer side that could of caused them to pip early.... Hope they dont take to long and drive you crazy !!!!!
