We dropped it in the hole made to add water, with a sort of squirt bottle with a long, pointed extension....I kept it at 75% for lockdown. I don't know about actually spraying the eggs. You can also drop in a folded, wet paper towel to add humidity.

I never mist chicken eggs. What incubator are you using? I have seen people add wet sponges.

I usually keep the hatching incubator in the bathroom and can run some hot water in the shower if I need to bring the humidity up or open the lid.

So, I just scraped a hole and looks like success, see his little beak poking through. Put it back in the incubator and now waiting.
just to confirm , how long roughly will I monitor it and see if its capable of zipping before I interviene the again, hope I don’t have too,

thanks again for looking and any help
