    I have 2 eggs in my bator(day 18 for one and day 17 for the other). I turned them one more time this morning and then added more water and shut the bator. Tonight I was thinking about it and realized that one of the eggs was only on day 17 ! I had forgotten ! I cannot believe that I did that...will the egg that is on day 17 be ok with having extra humidity an extra day? I hope I haven't drowned the poor lil' baby ! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    In my experience it won't be a problem.

    It should be fine- I put my eggs Day 17 and Day 18 in at the same time...now, my Day 21 only had one hatch, and my Day 20s are pipping away...just had one hatch!
