I had no clue it would get so crazy in there. Its loud and there's shells and chicks everywhere. I can't see inside due to condensation. The temp dropped too unless the probe is messed up from all this. I don't want to remove the chicks they're soaking wet. But I want to get some shells out. There broken neatly in half so its hard to see especially through the fog whether a shell is covering one. I'm worried a chick will smother. But its looking good, lots of chicks, maybe 20 so far. I turned the temp up a little and I think I'm gonna risk going in. Or should I wait longer? Like til they dry? Its taking a long time, they've been hatching for 24 hours.

Ok. There's an entire shell enveloping an unhatched egg. The only reason I could see was my "X" was half. There's 12 or so left. I'm not too worried about the humidity since its so high in there. But I probably shouldn't risk 3 dozen for one. But that one is probably dead?
