    Woke up this morning I woke up excited to see if there may be some pips, but to my horror, the humidity was at 50![​IMG]. I hope it wasnt like that all night. Im so worried now...

    Just get it back to where you want it. It should be no problem what so ever if it were just overnight.

    Needs to be right when they start pipping.

    Good luck!

    To my understanding, the temp is supposed to be at around 50* in lockdown?

    I wouldn't worry. They'll pull though.

    DON'T Worry! Just open it up and re-wet your towels sponges and cavities. They do a quick mist of the eggs to instantly bring up the humidity. GOOD LUCK on your hatch [​IMG]
