    Hi everyone
    I have one egg on day 23, when should I get worried? There is no pepping. Day 18 it looked great, with movement. Its my first hatch, and I have made mistakes.
    9 eggs from Sept 29 to Oct 12. First egg fully developed, but I helped and it died.
    This is a staggering hatch, I didn't know that I shouldn't have done it this way. Learning lots from this site.[​IMG] 8 eggs left and really want to have some luck.
    Temp is steady, humidity 40's, but 80's for lockdown. How will this affect the other eggs?

    the 80% humidity might be a tad high...i try to keep mine between 60% and 70%
