    [​IMG] I'm dry hatching and week one my air sacks look like almost 2.5 week sacks! My babies are doing well but im scared of hurting them. I upped the humidity but I dont think im stopping the loss. Im at 50%. Should I up it more? Im on day 11. Can I leave both the red plugs in? Im using a LG with a fan kit.

    i tried the same thing you did. i read all about how dry hatching is great and you get 100% hatches, so i tried it and got the worst hatch ever (all dead right before hatching). raise the humidity to 50 or 55.

    I'm going to bump up to 60 for a few days and that should allow me to pull out a plug for venting.
