    Only thing I would say is why is the humidity soo high soo early? That % is only for lockdown, which is the last 3 days. They are only suppose to be at 35 - 40 for the first 18! Keep an eye on them at hatch because too high humidity can cause troubles! That temp is too low too so your babies will be a bit late. Best of luck though and enjoy those babies!!![​IMG]
