    I'm going back to a dry hatch. I really think they drowned in the shell, or got fried the last few days. It's 28 percent humidity right now. I also put them in cartons this go around. I am going to try not opening to hand turn, but use a board.

    Honestly, opening is perfectly normal. A hen would get up at least once a day for 30 minutes. Your 5 minute increments wouldn't hurt anything. But Good Luck!!!

    I firmly believe in dry hatching by the way!
