    I have 9 days to go but I am not satisfied thermometer was not reading as accurate as I thought it was it was 2 degrees off. I think I was dry hatching to dry and the air cells I think growed to big.
    I am not happy with my results but I will continue with these eggs lock down on Wednesday and raise humidity and lower temp and leave them be. The good part is I think I have learnt a few things that
    I can apply next try. This was a trail run so I did learn from it. If I am lucky enough to get some to hatch I will be
    satisfied but if not that is OK to, I will just try again.

    The temp should not change at lockdown, for incubators with a fan it should be 99.5 F at all times.
