    What is your humidity? If it is low then go ahead and put the plug in. It is not too late. Try not to beat yourself up too much. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    i'm sorry but I'm new to hatching...I took both of my red plugs out of my still air LG 9200 and have had the humidity at around 45 - 50% since day 1. I haven't gotten past day 11 yet so I'm not any help

    I have read on here that humidity should be around 60 to 65% at lockdown... I don't think it's too late...

    Hope someone more experienced comes along to help... Good Luck!!! [​IMG]

    I could not find a thermometer to read the humidity. So I really don't know. But I just put in back in. [​IMG] But this I promise I will have one the next time I hatch eggs.

    If it helps....I bought an inexpensive set of a thermometer and hygrometer at the pet store for 8 bucks.


    There's info on here on how to calibrate the hygrometer and then you will always know what the humidity is. Hope it helps! [​IMG]

    Anyone here who would like a copy of the Practical Poultry magazine article on "Time to Hatch" can send me a pm with their e-mail address and I will send it to them. Or send me a pm with a fax number and I can fax it to you.

    Wishing everyone a good hatch
