    OK, in 6 days I am expecting a hatch. My problm is this.....uneven air sacks in only some of the eggs. Likely from low himidity. Can I remedy this before hatchtime by raising humidity ??? Or do I have to sit with my fingers crossed the peeps can make their way out of the shells at this point?
    Any input appreciated.[​IMG] The air cells in some appear to be overly large so if I can act on it now I need to know.
    Thanks!

    Yes... you are very early in your incubation... Try to keep your RH around 40 precent in the bator and you should be fine.. The last three days get it up to around 60 precent.
