    I wonder if it is because it is so dry in here.I have Allergies and it is driving me up the wall.I live close to the coast of NC.Do u think I should more moisture.But then I am afraid they may drown,Oh my I don`t know.I have been doing this for the past yrs.and just started back again.

    yeah, sometimes they don't come right on the due date. Just have to be patient and keep the incubator closed!!! [​IMG] I know it is nerve wracking!!!!

    When is the last time you candled the eggs?
