    I set a staggered hatch of eggs in my LG forced air incubator. I had another incubator that I was going to use for lockdown and hatch, but long story short, I ended up having to go buy an LG still air and the feed store was sold out of the fan kits. The temp and humidity in the forced air was at 99 and 45%-50%. I had one egg make it from the first set of eggs to lock down. The still air has maintained a consistent 100 degrees and humidity 65-70%. It went in lockdown on Tuesday and there was some movement until Wed. night. Nothing since. Day 21 today and no movement, peeping or pipping. I'm hoping it'll be late and I'll see something by Sunday. I don't want to take it out and candle, or should I if nothing happens by tomorrow night?

    Thanks Becca [​IMG]
    I really hope going from forced air to still air didn't do something to the chick. It's only one out of 9 Lavender Orp eggs to make it. [​IMG]
