    Hi all,
    We are trying it again, we just put 5 eggs in the 1588 I'm using as a hatcher.
    They are in eggs cartons, I started it yesterday, filled w/water and let it settle overnight.
    It has been holding steady humidity of 70% (we;ll see how long that lasts)
    Temp was running around 100-101, I checked the preset and it was on 4, so I turned that one off and turned 3 on.
    Hopefully that will get me to 99-100.
    I candled this morning as soon as I got home, it was still dark enough that I could see them moving very well.
    Here's to a good hatch!
    Fingers crossed all!
    Send me "live" vibes!!!
    Thanks everyone!
    Angela
