    I have 7 banty eggs on day 17 and noticed when I went to turn them that 2 of them slightly jiggled around every 3 or 4 minutes. It is just enough to make me wonder if my eyes are playing tricks on me, but I would stare at the egg next to it that is sitting still, and sure enough, the ones I thought move were really moving. Will I hurt the others if I stop turning now and turn up the humidity? or go ahead and turn them since they aren't moving very much. I hate these last minute anxiety attacks. Any info would be great. Thanks.

    i would put them in egg cartons little end down and then just invert them on a piece of 2x4 because i read some where else on the forum that you can actually stop on day 14

    Thanks for the info, but you can scratch that first post. I just opened the incubator to add water and seen them all jiggling a bit. So.. Here we go.
