    WEll i did it. [​IMG]: [​IMG] I didnt know that i should put the whole accurite in. So i measured the outside hum(room)the whole 11 days.And this was around 48%
    on sunday there still was some water in, and when i checked today ther was none . AHHH well i refilled some of the water and it is at 48% now. Did i kill them??? i hope not . I only have 18 out of 32 that were fertile and developed.

    You're fine. A few dry days, a few humid days, as long as enough water leaves the egg, you'll be fine.

    Don't panic they are ok. I am also forgetful and have let mine dry out. No harm came to the hatch.
