    I have 1 chick out, 1 pipped, and I think I saw another egg rocking. Sure hope I get a good hatch.

    Got a couple of broodies in the broody pen with wee chicks of their own that I plan to sneak these under so they can have nice warm momma and step siblings.

    Hatching tonight, as well!

    But... I am totally freaked out. I am afraid my humidity shot up too high for the last 2 days (our first hatch was early yesterday and it increased the humidity) and I am afraid the rest drowned!!!

    What humidity are you hatching at??

    Ugh. I seriously feel ill. 27 eggs at lockdown (they were alive when I candled them at day 18 before lockdown), 11 hatched, but no action out of the other 16 since midday today. [​IMG]

    Awww, there's still time... don't give up! To tell you the truth, we didn't use a hygrometer at all. I tried to buy one at a couple of places without any luck. I do plan on buying one before I ever set another clutch. I just made sure that the water channels were full (we used a used still air LG with no fan, but we had an egg turner) and then on lockdown day, I put in a wet sponge and wet paper towel. We got our pip today and then Sherlock hatched about half an hour ago.

    Good luck!

    Ugh! Thank you!

    Technically, tonight made day 21. But, I am so worried that the humidity was way too high. There was no condensation though.... who knows!
