This is my first time ever hatching chicks, and I'm doing it in my kindergarten classroom! We put our eggs in on May 11 around 10:00am. Everyone seems to agree that on day 18, the egg turner should be removed and the incubator should not be opened again until chicks hatch. Unfortunately, day 18 falls on this Monday, Memorial Day..so we don't have school and I don't have a way to get into the building. What should I do? Should I take the egg turner out in the morning on Tuesday the 30th as soon as I get to school (around 7:30)? I will need to increase the humidity as well, so I will have to open it anyway. Also, my humidity has been dropping each night...is there any way to keep it more stable without adding more water those last few days? Thanks!
