    They will live that long but they will probably do a lot of bulldozing of the other eggs. I just keep a spray bottle of water handy and when the chick is thoroughly dry I will quickly take it out and then shoot a fine mist of water into the incubator. I also keep a cool mist vaporizer going in the room during the hatch so that I don't lose much humidity in the incubator when it is opened. [​IMG]
