    About 7 pips now but no real progress. They are probably going to wait until I go to sleep. [​IMG]

    Had an emergency. The chick managed to slip past the edge of the screen and got stuck falling through the thicker mesh. It's in the brooder now. Humidity is back to 65%.


    Egg that rolled off camera is zipping.


    2 more zipping at top middle of camera and 1 nearly out.


    Buttons popping out everywhere now. [​IMG]

    4 more out.


    I think we have 6 more but I'm losing count lol

    We're down to counting what's left instead of what's hatched. 3 eggs that can't tell if they are doing anything.


    Oops computer overheated and cam died. You can reload it if you want but the hatching is about done. Start moving to brooder soon.

    Webcam is off. 22 buttons in the brooder, 2 drying, and 1 didn't make it. I think he drowned when the humidity spiked while the majority were hatching.
