My eggs started hatching yesterday afternoon, while the egg turner was still in the bator. I took it out as suggested and put the eggs on the floor of the incubator. I added a 1/2 pint jar of water with a sponge to get the humidity up and put a humidifier in the room. The glass on the incubator got some condensation on it so I guess the humidity is high enough, couldn't read the humidity meter through the glasss. About 1/7 of the eggs have hatched, how long do I keep the cover on, should I help pip the eggs after 24 hours? If not how long should I wait? These should have hatched friday night, so they are a little early.
