I candled a few last night to see where the air sack is because last time I tried incubating my air sac was small and my chicks didn’t make it. Do I need to increase my humidity at all? Here is a picture of my eggs. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    When I go on lockdown I usually keep the humidity around 70-75% but many people keep it around 65%.

    Air cells look ok, raise your humidity to 60 - 65%, then just sit on your hands until they start to hatch.
