    this is the third time i hatched and none have been succesfull, then i discoovered my humidity was 45% in lockdown, s this time i have put it to 70% and it is 37.d degrees c, the egg was slightly movng every 2 minutes and stopped, is this because the chick inside is too big to move or has it died?[​IMG]

    There is no way to answer that question but whatever you do, don't open the incubator. In fact, sit on your hands or walk away! Fingers crossed all is okay and you have a new chick sometime in the next 24-48 hours. [​IMG]
