    What should humidity be at hatching time. Mine is 58 I have a zip and a couple pips but, not progress since this morning. Should I increase the humidity to help them out????

    Thanks,

    I keep mine at 60 to 65 are they silkies? Silkies are slower, they like to stay in a bit longer that's how they get the "perfection".. I wouldn't interven just yet either, wait until at least 5 days after the due date...
