    What date did you set them? What did you keep the humidity at throughout incubation? And lastly, what was the temperature and is your incubator still air or forced air?

    19th febuary
    The humid wasnt measured but I kept the compartment topped up to how much it said it should be.
    Temperature of 36/37 degrees celcuis
    Forced air
    But one of my eggs stated pipping and I heard it tweeting it was so cute so I should be okay now!

    And today is actually only day 21, if you set on Feb 19th.
    Easiest way to remember is set on a Monday, due on a Monday.
