    I am so frustrated! All yesterday my humidity was perfect, today when I got home from class it was at 40! Not good. Any chance they are still ok in there?

    Heck ya!! The most important is when they pip and zip. Add a cloth or sponge so you can be sure to keep them up now!!
    Eta: dang iPhone autocorrect! Makes pip into pop!!! Argh. Didn't catch it! Sorry!!

    Should be fine. As stated, it's most important after they've pipped.

    Thank you, I am working to get it up now. This is my first hatch, I would like it to at least be a partial success.
