In the Brooder
- Jan 27, 2014
I'm currently on day 22 with my first hatch in the brinsea mini advance. I purchased this because of the great reviews and ease of use and great viewing for my children. I had 7 eggs that all developed perfectly and looked great at my last candling on day 18. But now on day 22, we have no signs of hatching, and I am beginning to worry. I followed all directions exactly, keeping water in one reservoir until lockdown and then filling both for days 19-21. I also used the automatic egg cooling program for 60 minutes a day for days 5-18. I just checked humidity with a hygrometer and its at 82%. I do live in a naturally humid climate. Will my chicks not hatch with humidity that high? Should I remove water?
