    Long story short, my chicken eggs humidity went qll the way down to 16%. and its lockdown [​IMG] and they hatch tomarrow!

    Also my parents are divorced and im going to my dads tonight, my mom said that if they start to hqtch and looks like they need help she will pick me up. But I dont know if I should just stay home cause they might be shrink wraped, or if I should go, and just come home if needed...... What should I do?! [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance!

    I would prob stay home but if staying home means your gonna fuss over them and do something like open the incubator because you think they maybe shrink wrapped now you would only be doing more harm then good. I personally though unless is unavoidable never leave unattended during hatch times. Im lucky if i even sleep those last couple days [​IMG]

    Never mine i noticed after i posted this it was already a couple days later [​IMG] How are they doing i hope the hatch went well.

    The high humidity is only needed once the eggs pip and are actually hatching, it won't affect them if they haven't pipped. I'd be more worried about having too high humidity if you went into lockdown two days early.
