    #6 looks to be about an average. I think #2 probably has the biggest but nobody has an abnormally large or small one. So between day 14-18 you want to lose the same (maybe a touch more) amount of moisture in the 4 days that you've previously been losing in 7 days? If thats the case I would want to run at a lower humidity for those 4 days.

    Thanks, Jack! [​IMG]

    Thanks, Jm! [​IMG] Ordered your calendar yet? I tried, but failed my password too many times and have to wait an hour! [​IMG]

    I'm charging them in protein. Eggs or meat... it matters not. [​IMG]

    Just a bit! I wanted to at least feather out before moving them outdoors. Most have lost their fuzz, but many still have bald patches under their wings. Hopefully in a couple of weeks... [​IMG]

    Hmm... I didn't have to do anything to get the same rate of growth of air cells between day 14 and day 18. The cells grew just as larger in 4 days as they did between days 7 and 14. I think the increased metabolism and heat generated in the egg helped somewhat. Just an nonobjective view from my vast experience with hatching... all of two times! [​IMG]
