    I'm sorry, I don't understand what you're asking? Posture? Do you mean position of the eggs? The position looks fine judging from the pic. Have you been tilting them during incubation? What was your incubation humidity, before you locked down?

    As I add daily to the count the humidity has been lower. eggs are on a 8hr turner plus
    I invert them one time every day or two .My Q. is why eggs dated 6/2 hatch before older
    ones? Posturing refers to the vertical position ,is this ideal? or tipped to one side? RR
