    After my last hatch which I got 3/30 chick, I was devestated. This time, I've been checking and watching everything like every 30 minutes. I'm also trying to egg carton tilt method this time. I'm on day 14, I candeled them all today, and.....










    29/30 eggs are growing great! OMG! I'm soooo egg-cited.
    The other one has a blood ring..

    If I get 50% to hatch I will be incredibly, incredibly happy. If all but just a few hatch I will probably be so amazed I will faint dead away! lol [​IMG]


    Unfortunetly I won't be here when they hatch. I am taking a week long class next week. So my mother is going to watch them for me. wahhh. I hope she doesn't kill them in the last 3 days, when she gets them.

    Also I've been keeping my Humidity between 40%-45%. How far do you think I should rise it on last few days.

    Good luck! I'm on my second hatch too and hoping that my experience will lead to better ratios!
