    Are you monitoring humidity? The first 14 days humidity should be kept between 40-55%. After day 14 stop turning the eggs and raise humidity to 60-70%. You measure humidity with a hygrometer, which you can buy at most garden stores or on Amazon.

    I am in South Louisiana and our humidity is off the charts here so I don't worry about it.My sportsman 1502 normally stays around 35% for the entire process until lockdown.At lockdown I raise the humidity to 65% for the hatch.Imo it is more important for your humidity to be correct during lockdown.
