    If your humitity is right for the last three days than I wouldn't take a chance opening your bator. You don't want the humitity to drop. There should be enough going on for them to hatch. Are you hearing any internal peeps yet?

    Ok the book that I have said to spray them with water for the last time and leave them alone, and after reading some of the posts on here. should i be hearing some noises out of the eggs by day 19 or will i hear more tomorrow on day 20?? I am asking a lot of questions and I should just wait and see what happens but, you get all excited when you are about to have little chicks about to hatch and you really want them all to hatch because we have spent the last 19 days raising them in the eggs

    What book are you reading that says you need to spray them with water? I have never read this. Hmm.

    Also, you really need a hygrometer to tell you what the humidity is in there because it should be raised the last couple of days. This is our first time hatching but we are on day 18 and there isnt any movement yet so you probably wont see or hear anything until a day or two before they hatch [​IMG]

    Thanks for the help

    I dont have a hygrometer.

    The book is "The Back Yard Flock" written by Mike Strecker

    I hope I hear some soon because tomorrow is day 20 [​IMG]
