    Well, it is day 3 of lockdown-the day there suppose to hatch-and I still have no pip. [​IMG] the eggs are moving ever so slightly but I dont know what to do. Is that normal? The temperature is 96 and the humidity is 75. The temp was 99 yesterday. Do I need to turn it up? What should I do? [​IMG] I hope there ok! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I usually keep my incubator at 99.5 for the duration. If it is/was a little cooler, it may take a little longer for them to hatch. Keep it closed and find something to do while nature takes its course.! Good luck! [​IMG]

    Ok. Maybe it isnt the best idea to sit in my comfy chair in the middle of my kitchen staring at the incubator. [​IMG]
