Okay, I was re-reading about the humidity, and realized that I'm supposed to have the humidity at 50% for days 1-18, not 60%. I have 13 jumping little eyes right now, are they gonna make it to become fuzzy chicks??? I'm on day 7, so up until now they've been at 55-60%....

Well, all but one of my 14 eggs were fertile, the 14th had a blood spot that I found yesterday and confirmed today. All the others are lively and jumping around when I candle, even the tiny SF eggs. This is my first hatch so I'm a little frazzled, I just want day 21 to be here!!!! Thanks for reassuring me, I'm gonna let the humidity go down on its own, then keep it at 50%. Thanks again!!!
