    so, the humidity went down for some reason from 70% to 45%... i thought it best to add more water, but couldn't see well and ended up slightly spilling. the eggs are now in a SMALL amount of water- just wet on the floor of the bator.
    i think it's best to leave them and just wait- they are supposed to hatch today- nothing yet...
    thoughts? i don't want to open it again!!

    Can you see any pips? If not then you can open it to soak up water if it worries you enough. If the humidity is right then I'd just leave it and see how its goes. Also if its minimal and they cant drown in it then I wouldnt worry. Good luck though and stay positive, you will have babies soon enough to calm you. lol

    i don't think there is any way they could drown in it.
    the humidity is still low and as far as i know there are no pips...
    i think i'll let it be... and hope to see babies in the morning...
