PLEASE HELP!! 😩
Hello to all!

Thank you so much for your previous help!
One of my 4 duck eggs just internally piped but the other ones have not yet. What do I do? Should I put them all into lockdown now?
I can’t stop my incubator from turning the eggs, it’s a Janoel 12. The directions are awful and I don’t know how to remove the turning mechanism.
Also, what’s the difference between a “wet bulb” humidity thermometer and a regular one?
I’ll send a pic of mine.
I’m such a wreck because I know I should not turn the eggs anymore or open the incubator during lockdown, but how will I know when the other 3 hatch?
I lowered the temperature to 37.2 c. and the humidity is 75. But I don’t know what kind of humidity reader I have.
I’m really confused because this is such a delicate time!
Second photo is not very good because he is moving so much in the air sac that I couldn’t get a clear photo. 🥰

Kindly,
Amy

It wont hurt them if you stop turning a few days early.
Thank you!
I know the humidity has to be at 75, but I can’t get it lower then 83!
I put them in lockdown even though only one internally piped. Is this ok?
Do you have any ideas on how I can get my humidity down? 🥰
 
I wouldn't stress too much about your humidity right now.

Humidity is controlled mostly by the surface area of water you have in your incubator.
Smaller surface area = less humidity
Bigger surface area = higher humidity

Is there any way you can lessen the surface area of water in your incubator?

Unfortunately not. 😩
