    12 eggs set two have pipped. one has a dime size hole punched out and now im seeing some fresh red blood in the membrane, why is this happening? also what if my humidity to high? not sur what it is but ther is condensation on my bator glass.. this is my 2nd hatch i did everything wrong last time and one hatched now i,did even worse with temp flucations and humidity...i,hope they dont die.
    and advice is welcomed as im so nervous,i hope i didnt kill them tring to hatch some friends for the one chick that survived the last hatch..he is all alone almost a mth old,and i think he thinks hes a thank yall,in advance for your answers.

    They probably just pipped a little early I thinly they should be alright. I always only get two or three. Sometimes more I think that comes from where I get them.
    Good luck with your hatch.
    Oh yeah if you have condensation your humidity is to high open your vents until it goes away.
