    A word of advice since this is your first hatch...DO NOT OPEN THE BATOR!!!!! Give all of them a chance to hatch...after that first one hatches your are going to want to get her out of there...leave the bator closed if at all possible...you will let out temp and humidity. Most of the time the others in the shell will hear her and want to see the world too!![​IMG]

    Thanks, yeah I have been reading that not to open the bator til all hatch. It said that they can survive for 24-48 hours is this right? I am so nervous.
