    I know what you mean. I'm a wreck starting on day 18. It's like standing at the maternity door waiting for news.

    Let it be, don't open the incubator, do nothing, sit on your hands until they've all hatched. The temp and humidity may change, but it has probably done that during the whole incubation period. The humidity will skyrocket now that some of the eggs are opening-- more moisture being put into the air. Go take a walk, read a book, let it all just happen [​IMG]

    Good luck, have fun, and dont' touch!! [​IMG]

    Ha ha! I run my entire incubation at 100 degrees. No worries--they can stand a bit of variation, especially during the hatch. Anything below about 103 won't hurt them for short periods, and even that they can survive briefly. Enjoy your hatch!
