This time I have 14 in there and on day 19 when I went in lock down I candled them all and everyone was moving.... NOW, my little stinker opened the bator and the temp and humidity dropped

, but once it was shut it went right back up real fast. Mine has a fan in it I think it helps. Ok so she opened it and its day 20, everything dropped but went right back up.... BUT THEN I had an egg pip after about 20 minutes!! Has this happened to anyone before

I actually often open to check things during the last few days. It is possible that a few may be shrink wrapped but I think they should be okay as long as the humidity is back up and it stays up. Congrats on your previous hatches and good luck with this one!

Mine gets opened all the time during hatch and I still get a good hatch. A fast open and closed doesn't seem to hurt much.

I hatch eggs so the kids can learn. If one or two die the kids can learn from that too.

We now have 4 pipping eggs... just the littlest cracks in the shells is all. Nothing has changed with the first pipped egg, but hoping for the best and they ALL zip SOON!!!!
