    Quote:We have similar dilemmas though I'm on day 18. One of mine is actively moving around periodically. Panic mode! Lol! I questioned a few of my 33 being a bit slow in development, so was holding off on lockdown. I added a bit of water to increase humidity, it went from 40% to 75% in no time.. What if the humidity gets lower after being in lockdown for any period of time? Last hatch I did not fret over, they were local eggs and we were doing it just for fun, had NO clue what we were doing and all 12 hatched. UGH:confused:
