    OK so I am trying to hatch eggs in my bator. Well I looked and I have one with a hole. But I hear no peeping and I picked it up and swear I felt it move. I dont know what to do. I'm not sure what I'm really asking just any advice really!! Or anything.

    You can RELAX!
    Let Nature do it's thing.
    It can take more than 24 hours to hatch, so turn up the humidity and wait.
    Go out to a movie if you can't leave the 'bator alone LOL.

    increase the humidity to 66% or so.
    Helps keep long hatchers from drying out and sticking to shell.
    But add humidity without opening 'bator if you can.

    add a wet paper towel, or put water in the water trays in the bottom of the 'bator if it has those.
