    Today is day 18. Or will be in about 3 hours. I set them around 9:30 p.m. Jan 16th. I checked a few of the eggs and the airsacs look the same as day 14. Is it still to early or should they be starting down the side. Should I go ahead and up my humidity? Is it ok to hatch them in egg cartons? Or am i better off leaving them on thier sides? Ive been hand turning. Humidity has been around 30 to 40. Temp has been pretty steady between 99-100. Also tonight is lockdown right?

    Day 18 is lockdown, but day 19 is good too.

    Your settings were the same as mine. Today is day 19 for me. Good luck!

    Do you have any pips yet? And good luck on your hatch too. Little fuzzy butts are so cute. Then they get big. L.O.L.

    Nothing yet. I'm hoping they hatch. [​IMG] I woke up on day 16 to find the incubator at 115 degrees. I know my chances are slim to none.

    106 degrees - not 115. Geez.

    I think there is still hope with 106 degrees. I guess we will find out.

    I think I read on here some where 106 is right on the line. I hope they hatch for you. Its a long 21 days for nothing to hatch.
