Last night I had one egg rolling back and forth about 4 times in an hour and I could hear peeping. I'm having trouble with the humidity, add warm water to the sponge through a hole in the top and I can get it up to about 62% but last night it dropped back down to 44%. It is now back up to the 50's by adding water.

Is it typical for them to move a few times and then stop completely or are the humidity levels dropping and rising killing it?

We are on day 22.

Thanks everyone for your patience.

All I can add is patience. They rock and roll sometimes when they are getting into position to hatch. Your temps and humidity might have been off so they are slower to hatch out of the correct day. It's not set in stone for 21 day hatches.

If you can add water without opening the bator yes. After they start thier pips the humidity should rise from hatchings. 60s are not that bad a deal for humidity levels.
