    So I am getting ready to have my first hatch.

    Lockdown will be Wednesday night. Their 21 day will be Friday night.

    My question is: When do you say their not going to hatch?

    I have 14 babies moving in the egg and appearing normal at this point. I will lock them down and then await hatching. Any eggs not showing signs of hatching need to be cleared out when? By day 22 Sat? Or give more time?

    I am using a Brisea Oct 20 with auto humidity pump, and auto turning. Humidity is at 47%(average) and temp is at 99.5.

    Any tips on good humidity for hatching in the brinsea? I was thinking 65%?

    What date did you set them? I usually give mine until day 25 and then open them up to see what went wrong.

    65% is fine, I hatch at that in my Brinsea.
