    Quote:you have the temp at 37.5? thats too low you need to raise it to 99.5 they are cold would you want to move? the humidity is probably at 0 to 10% if you dont raise it they will stick to the membrane and dry up inside the shell and not be able to break through it,think of plastic wrap tightly around them and you need to put a wet sponge or damp cloth in there if you dont have a hydrometer when i hatch them out i try to get it at 70 to 80% humidity

    what is 37 degrees in Fahrenheit?

    you want to maintain 100 degrees Fahrenheit and over 60% humidity when hatching

    The OP said he had it at 37.5 degrees (Celsius, I'm assuming) which is 100 degrees Farenheit.
