    All of my eggs have air sacs sizes of day 18 on day 8. I had the humidity between 50-60%, but now what do I set it at? Is it too late to save the eggs? What do I do? PLease Help. Thanks

    Hi Will02. Up your humidity a bunch if you can to help slow the weight loss.

    A few questions: Were your eggs shipped or local? Were they fresh? How did the air cells look when you put them in?

    Now for the incubator. What kind are you using? How do you know your humidity is at 50-60% Have you double checked your temperatures?

    A little more info will help people give you options on what to do.

    I am using a farmers innovators incubator, and it measures the humidity and shows it on a meter on the top of it. I had eggs shipped from the Meyer Hatchery and did not check them when they arrived. I have been upping the humidity. Thank You!
