    Hi, this is my first time hatching eggs! The last three days do I flip the eggs or no? What temperature and humidity should it be at? Thanks.

    I think its day 25 that you stop. When you start the lock down and im not sure about the humidity.

    It's recomended to stop turning three days before the hatch is due - (so three days before your 21st day) the humidity should be up-ed to 60-65% in the last three days
    Hope this helps!- this is my 21st day today and ive a few pips - very excited! [​IMG]
