    Did you buy them from me? Sold some last weekend.

    21 days in the incubator, turning and the end of that day you set them in lockdown so they hatch on day 24.

    My incubator is set to 99.5 degrees and I attempt to keep it at 65% humidty from lockdown to hatch. Give them some air. (Remove a plug or two).

    I use a forced air beginning to end.
