    You'll want to raise the humidity, add water through the vent hole if you can to keep the incubator closed. Sounds like your going to have new chicks a day early.

    I know this sound horrible but I only want 2 today...... on March 21, 2011,We hatched our first ever chicks, on day 19....it was my grandmothers 90th birthday. She named the 2 born that day Mutt and Jeff. This morning my grandmother went to meet her Savior, it would be cool if we got 2 again today. ----- I love you grandma, I will see you again, that time we will be together forever. [​IMG]
