    I got a day ahead of myself. I raised my humidity and put my eggs in the egg carton on what I thought was day 18 but it really was only day 17. Have I killed the babies?? I sure hope not!

    *** I guess I didn't kill them, at least not all of them anyway! [​IMG] I have a pip!!

    Holy Cow!!.....I hope not or we'd all be in trouble!! [​IMG]

    I forgot to quit turning mine week before last, and they were pipping in the turner!!!WHILE IT WAS TURNING!! [​IMG]

    I have stopped turning a day or so early when we were going out of town. Had no problems at all!!

    Happy Hatching!
