    Does anyone know if it will be fine to bring humidity up and take eggs out of turner on Day 17 instead of day 18? Monday is Day 18 and where I 99% of the time workfrom home, as luck would have it I have to work on site Monday so I can either move humidity up Sunday night or Monday night... Don't know which side to er on.

    I always do mine on day 19. I'm I doing it too late? [​IMG]

    I Just re read instructions and I think you are right. It should be Day 19 so I will adjust humidity and such Monday night or if I am home Tuesday - Tuesday morning.

    Yep, last hatch I had 5 out of the 6 hatch, and the only reason number 6 didn't make it was because it was deformed and couldn't pip. Shew, glad your directions say 19 too, I was about to worry!
