    My first lockdown ever! Candled last night and had 10 that looked to be alive and kicking. One looks like quitter but I left it in. Ramping up the humidity right now... Its at 60 and climbing w/o a sponge which is great because I've seen many posts from people having trouble getting their humidity up in the LG bators. I'm hoping it'll top out at 70 or 75 so I don't have to open again til they've hatched. I've got a syringe rigged up to a drinking straw to feed water as needed over the next several days and I read all the stuff I could about helping them out if need be. I'm excited and nervous and I can't wait to have babies!!! Fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly! [​IMG]
