    I have 4 eggs in the incubator and today is day 23, and the first one poked a hole! So excited! I've had the temp at 100 instead of 102 (still air) so I guess that's the reason for the 2 day delay. I need a better thermometer next time. The only problem is I can't get the humidity above 50%. I filled all the water wells.
