    Well I opened up an egg on day 30 and it was fully formed (I felt awful). So I let the eggs go another day, and I'll be darned if one of the eggs didn't hatch. I have a healthy peeping keet running around inside the incubator! Gonna give the eggs one more day, maybe the little guys' loud peeping might convince another to come out! [​IMG]

    i had one hatch at day 24 and opening the bator to get him out messed up my hatch. 15 eggs had fully formed dead keats. next hatch will have a small water in there at lockdown, a little feed and a lock on the bator door. not to be opened until day 30... live and learn
