    Hello all,
    Mid day 20, and there's absolutely nothing coming from my incubator. Everybody is talking about movement, sound and pipping on day 20, so I'm starting to get worried! On my first try the humidity was too height, so I ended up with 15 perfectly formed but dead chicks, now my humidity should be good, but it would be awfull if something goes wrong again. This time I put 10 eggs in the incubator, 3 were empty at candling, so 7 were left and developing great at the last candling at 18 days, right before lockdown.
    do you guys think I am supposed to hear/see anything at this time?
    Thanks, Floor
