    Hi
    This is my first time incubating eggs. One is rocking already day 17, is that normal? Will it maybe hatch early? I am not even on lockdown.
    Should I raise the Humidty, it's about 40.
    I candelled them yesterday. Lot's of movement and full. They are Japanese Chickens.

    I would lock them down and raise the humidity. Yes it's normal. Good luck

    Thanks
    I locked them down and got humidity to 75. I hope that is good. Got my first chickens ever in Sept, now I am trying to hatch eggs in October, who would have thought. You guys are too good, I am addicted. I want some of those cute fuzzys.[​IMG]

    My ducks started rocking 6 days early but they hatched right on time.

    I put them on lockdown four days prior to hatch date, but next time I'll wait till the 2 day mark unless I see a pip.
