    I have 2 chicks due on Monday as well. It is the hard part I am afraid something is going to go wrong and I will loose my chicks. This hatching business is so addicting.[​IMG]:old

    I put a big bowl of water in the bottom of mine and a couple of sponges it seems like the more sponges I add the high the humidity, just keep the bowl full of water. Hot Water.​
