I set 6 of my araucana eggs along with some mixed eggs. Smoothmule and I were unable to connect. My incubator is at 30% humidity. I know the dry method seems to work well for you, will it have an adverse effect on the barnyard mix of eggs that are in with them? Another question, How hard are the blue eggs to candle? I have to assume that you need a pretty strong light since the shell is pigmented all the way through.
