We are currently on day 21 and already have 3 healthy chicks which are now in the brooder and look to be enjoying themselves.
But last night the incubator humidity dropped to 58 from 73 (not sure what time or for how long) will this affect the unhatched eggs still in the incubator?

Hi there and welcome to BYC!

I don't know if it will effect them, but as the eggs hatch you'll get humidity spikes. Did you add more water to bring the rH to where you would like it?

If it's day 21 and you already have chicks in the brooder, how long did you leave the chicks in the incubator? Where they dry yet?

Yeah we added more water and the humidity went back up.

The one that hatched on day 19 had 15 hours in the incubator and the other 2 that hatched on day 20 had 13 and 11 hours. All were fully dry and fluffy.

Others might have better understandings, but I would think the remaining eggs should be just fine.
