    Ok I have a very very small pip in one of my eggs, but nothing else happening with the others. [​IMG] I hope they are ok.

    I am having humidity issues since last night with this little giant still air. It went down from 70% to 45% and I have no idea how long it was down and then woke up to it being 40%. I immidiatly gave it yet another sponge for moisture and it only went up to 50% after a hour so now I have added a wet sock and it is steadly climbing.
    UHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    I hope they are not to dry in the shell to come out. It sucks!

    Don't worry - they will all be fine. Sometimes they run a day behind in hatching. [​IMG]

    Today is my day 20, and I woke up to a baby chick chirping away. Late this afternoon another egg has pip. Man it takes them a long time to hatch. It's driving me nuts. I only had 3 eggs that went into the hatcher. Good luck on your hatch!!! [​IMG]
