    Today is day 20 for me, I already have one hatched out early and at least for that have pipped. My problem is that the humidity is dropping from around 75-77ish to 69. Does the humidity normally drop when the eggs begin to hatch?
    Thanks,

    Usually it goes up....but I think 69 is still fine.
