I have a shell that is breaking open. Is that peeping?

    Out of all the eggs that I have received from other people My own egg is the first to peep. I hope the chick makes it. This is our first big hatch and we have never had the incubator at our home. I have the temp at 100 degrees and the humidity is holding at 62%. Now if the other 49 will just follow.
    My teenage daughter is so happy. We will keep an update going. Thanks to all, dave27889

    If you go into the "learning center" above you will see that it is recommended that you up the humidity to 70-80 percent. Give them every chance you can and please do not open the 'bator. good luck and we can't wait for pics!!
