    Well, we bought a eBay incubator... Janoel knockoff I believe. I must be lucky as I have no complaints. Even the instructions were good. Even got a auto turner too. Here we sit, as stated, at Day 20. Someone decided to pip early, and at the wrong end. It is breathing fine, and I will periodically ensure the membrane stays moist, while avoiding the nostrils. Is there any other advice we should follow?

    Do not open the incubator - it puts the rest of your hatch at risk. Hard as it is, sit on your hands into your hatch is over. Good luck!

    We woke up this morning and the lil one wasn't breathing or moving. Eggtopsy revealed a shrink wrapped membrane. But, on a good note, two others had hatched out and were destroying the coffee filters separators, so off to the brooder. [​IMG][/IMG][​IMG]
