  1. She’s out. Had a wee run round and is now resting. Her feet are perfect! I am glad I helped her. The other eggs are showing no signs yet.

    That was great fun. :ya I came late to the party and it was like watching a marathon of my favorite TV show! I'm so glad the hatching is going so well. Have never done this myself, so I'm anxious to read every detail. :caf Thanks for sharing your experience with us! :goodpost:

  6. They’re both fluffy and very active so I’ve popped them under their Brinsea 600 brooder plate. Both curled up in a ball together and i hear lots of little happy cheeps. As I removed my wee rescue chick I saw eggNo 3 has pipped. I am not touching or opening anything now! This is her in picture no 2. I was worried she wasn’t opening her eyes earlier but she’s fine. I will try introducing them to the water later on once they’ve settled in.

    Congratulations!
    You opening the incubator with that big humidity in you house didn't hurt a thing.

    What can hurt is having too high humidity in your bator...you don't want it above 80% ever.

  10. It is about 70-75% I had to open it slightly to allow it to settle
    This morning as it shot right up, I had used warm water, got such a shock. But it sorted out pretty quickly. I feel less tense about opening the incubator now I realise the humidity is as high outside as inside. What I do feel is maybe I shouldn’t have moved it’s position.but I’m an over thinker always looking for reasons
