    My temperature is at 99.5 my humidity is sustained at 69% to 70, day 20 is that fine, it stayed that way from late in the day on day 18. I wanted to keep the turner in until day 19 but my daughter said to do it on day 18 so I compromised with her and took it out on the 18 day at night

    That's when most do stop turning their eggs...the evening of the 18th day and candle...

    I had temps a bit lower than that and hatched 8 out of 9 eggs. It is fine.
