    Get yourself a good 6 hours of sleep, then wake to some fuzzy butts and watch the late hatchers. Just a suggestion [​IMG]

    Last night i had some that absolutely popped out of the shell and were running around in the incubator in no time, but their was also a late hatcher that took his own sweet time and got out not just 30 minutes ago.

    I would think they would be jumping out any minute now. It's been 9 hours?

    If they made if far enough to pipp seems like it would be a problem during the hatching window... Hum? Humidity was my only thought but if it's been good I'm lost (I know not a hard thing to do LOL)
