    7 eggs in Bator-Day 20 temp-99.5 with 75% Humidity. Eggs seemed to have tilted slightly, big end up.-Is this a sign? No peeps heard or movement seen.

    Don't open the bator even when one hatches as you will lose your humidity and cause problems with the chicks sticking to the shell and can't get out. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

    Join the club!!! I have hatched several eggs, and I STILL can't stay away from the bator. I usually have a smudged nose print on the window looking in. It is really rediculous...I just need to get an automatic turner so I can just forget about them. That must make the time go faster. But I like to hand turn, I think it's better bonding.
