    [​IMG] forgot to write down the date i set my eggs; went into check them and after candling 6 i see one is pipped, didnt go into lockdown as i was thinking it'd be the first of next week before they hatched but looking back the timing is obviously right, hopefully i will still have a decent hatch here goes nothing[​IMG] had 19 out of 36 hatch lost 2 after hatch who know for what reason but got more fluffy butts than i know what to do with looks like i got 3 barred rocks outta them rest will be barred rock x white leghorn

    I think you'll be fine. Just up the humidity to 50% and wait.

    I have done it before. I actually had one half out when i realised. Just up your humidity and they should hatch fine.
