    Day 10 with coturnix eggs. At 10pm lat night humidity was 50%. At 6:30am the hygrometer said 20% which could also mean 0% because it won't read anything lower than 20%. Has this happened to anyone before and do my chicks still have a chance?

    mine went dry on day 19 yes after lockdown- the plugs got loose- ( opened it up and added water *shrug* )

    It was also dry day 8 too.

    I have 10 hatched, 2 wet the others dry and one pip - in 13 eggs

    so right now if the two wet ones survive I have 10/13 (76.9%), if the one that piped decides to actually hatch I'm doing even better (84.6%) - but that one doesn't count -yet-p [​IMG] .

    I'm on day 22 now in my hatch- I was mentioning to the OP that I had no water accidentally on day 8 and also no water on day 19- added water both times and I have 11/13 hatched (two still gooey, the other 8 fluffy) and one more piped (my hatch is late because of low temps)

    No its just that I'm at work and am doing this from my phone so I thought the page had refreshed and I had no responses, but actually the page had not refreshed at all so I just didn't see them and thought I was being ignored!! [​IMG]
