    I have no idea. :idunno

    How many eggs do you have in there? Any signs of life? None have rocked, rolled and started zipping yet?

    .OK if you set them on the 7th then day one is the 8th. Which means today the 5th of Feb is day 28. During lockdown you really shouldn't be opening the incubator and handling the eggs. How's the humidity? If you have the humidity up and temp is stil good I would give them 2 days without disturbing them.

    Good Luck!

    Today is day 27 for me. I set them the same day as one of my customers did. He emailed last night that he had one hatch, emailed this morning that one more was pipped, and how excited he was. They like to be sneaky those little turkeys.

    Mine are midgets what are yours?
