    I have 11 ringneck pheasant eggs hatching. The first one cracked thru on Wednesday and this morning the 10th one cracked. As of yet none of them have done anymore than make a crack or hole. Best I can see they are all still shaking from time to time with live babies.
    How long should I wait before I help them? If they need help I do believe it would be because of something I am doing or did wrong not something wrong with the babies. I have hatched pheasants before with out having to help them.

    Humidity stays between 50% to 60% goes as high as 75% when I spray water through the holes, but only for a short time the drops right back.

    Ha been on lock down since Tuesday night, it's Friday early morning now and I have not opened the incubator at all.

    Still air incubator

    Temp stays right around 101 degrees but varies between 100 to 102.
