    I am now on day 21 with my 17 lavender orpington hatching eggs, I woke up and had to run some errands and did not check my incubator.. I just looked and the humidity was at 39%!! I have no idea why it dropped so fast from last nights 69%...my question is will this be a problem..I have no pips yet, and would hate for the chicks to be shrink wrapped inside the egg...

    I would try to bump it up just a bit if you can. Throw in a wet sponge or towel. You don't have to bring it up a lot but a little bit would be helpful so they don't shrink wrap.

    They should be fine as long as there were no pips.
