    4 chicks have hatched but we have 10 other eggs pipping and zipping and my hygrometer and thermometer just broke (its wires got disconnected!) [​IMG].
    I'm really worried now. i don't know if the temp or humidity is ok now!
    I'm really worried about my other eggs and i'm panicking!!! [​IMG]

    If you can, try and get another thermometer. If you can't, then don't worry about it. Incubators are really good at holding the right temperature.

    thankfully someone went out and got one for me. It doesn't seem the best though the temp keeps spiking @_@
