    I am concerned that the water level dropped so quickly (not even 48 hours before having to fill the one side), is this a problem?

    Also, it looks as though I might have a bad egg, already funny coloring on outside of egg, should I open the bator and investigate? They have only been incubating 49 hours, set them at 945pm on the 8th....

    Thsnks soooooo much for any help :)

    I personally dry incubate for the first half of the incubation time (about a week and a half) in my moist laundry room.

    However, once I fill one water chamber it requires filling every day. I fill both chambers at lockdown but still have to open it daily to fill. I stop filling it when I see a pip. Mine always hatch quickly one after another and so I have not had to deal with a dry chamber and pipped eggs yet.

    Oh definitely get bad eggs, smelly eggs, sweating eggs, discolored eggs out of there or they can explode.
