    So its day 21 and no action yet. The jumping we saw has stopped. We had to move the incubator to a shorter table because my son was leaning on the one we had it on and I didnt feel comfortable with him doing that so its on a lower table for better observation.

    I have 2 questions. Could that gentle move affect anything and second, do eggs get lighter in color when they are getting ready to hatch. My hubby says they seem lighter to him now.

    Also the humidity seems to be rising even though I haven't changed anything and the temp is getting harder to regulate. we have a 9200 with still air and the temp was holding at 99.9 and has been dropping to 98 and then just now it spike to 101.7. I this normal?
