    :(Of my six remaining eggs, none have pipped, we're on day 24. Should I give it 1 or 2 more days? My temp has been slightly low, I'm hoping it is causing a delay. What do you think?

    What has you temp. been? I would candle them and if there is no movement throw them out. If there is movement bump up the humidity and see what happens.

    Temp has been around 99, but dipping down into 98's. For some reason all of a sudden I can't get it regulated right. One small adjustment will send it to 101+. My humidity has been reading a little low, I 'm having a hard time keeping that up too despite all the moss I have packed in there. I have been feeding in water via tubing through a hole in the top.

    I would candle them and check for movement. if there is movement take a clean sponge and soak it in hot water , and put it in the incubator to bump the humidity up.
