    I have 6 fertilized eggs and 1 not. One of the eggs is shaking with a countdown of 3 days at the top of the incubator. It looks like there is a tiny hole but this has been like this for 24 hours now. I wanted to get the bator ready (take out the bottom tray, fill up the water for humidity, and put down paper towel) but with this shaking egg, I am not so sure.

    I am hatching eggs up at a college for freshman biology. I have 7 eggs in a mini advanced B incubator. The temperature at the top keeps fluctuating rapidly and so I have to call the company and ask whats going on.

    What would you do?[​IMG]

    If you haven't highered your humidity you need to do that. So go ahead and go into lockdown. The egg should be fine.
