    One of my friends eggs was tossed last night day 14 and no development! All of SoCalChicks are showing good development! I will candle on day 18 when I lay the others down for lockdown! Hopefully pics then!

    So I have kept humidity between 45 to 55. But I have two eggs due to hatch on the 31st.. SoCalChicks eggs will be on day 17 ...should I increase the humidity for lockdown on the first two or would that effect my hatch rate on SoCalsChicks eggs? I am more willing to risk the two instead of risking harming the other twelve.

    We just candled and found the smallest egg had failed to develop!
    All 11 are in lockdown.
    We saw movement in most of them. However, two of them have my DH concerned as they dont look to be developed enough! I cant wait to see how many chicks I get! I had two of my friends hatch yesterday ( on another thread) and am eager to meet these little fuzzy butts!![​IMG]
