    WEll, we put our 1 egg in the hatcher, its at day 19 this morning.
    Filled big bowl w/water and sock, humidity holding at 70% temp 100-101.
    I put it in an egg carton as well.
    Nervous wreck here.
    I am trying to be optimistic but keeping in mind its our first one and we are learning.
    Keep fingers crossed and send "live vibes" to us!
    Thanks to everyone for the great helpful information, help, tips, support, answers etc!
    Appreciate it!

    LOL. If you got 50% I'd be a bit worried there.
