I've had my humidity between 55-60% and I'm at day 15. Is this too high? Do I need to change anything to have a successful hatch, or have I doomed it? Candling showed all eggs developing normally, but the extra space still seems to be pretty big for this far in. I'm afraid I've doomed them all to drown in excess fluid at hatching time!

i did some of my first hatches at around 60% and they didnt turn out to well, since i have changed to about 35-40 % they are better hatches

If you already have a large air sac, I wouldn't drop the humidity very much. The eggs are supposed to lose some volume and leave a good sized air sac by the time they are ready to hatch. 60% seems high for incubation tho. Usually lockdown is 70 - 75% humidity and incubation is 40 - 50% (dry hatch method).

My humidity was around 55-60 for the first 18 days and then up to 80 during lockdown. I sucessfully hatched 20 out of 21 eggs. I had only one not making it and one dying at 2 days old.
