    Quote:thats about what mine is when im hatching them out and yeah my first time hatching i only had 4 hatch out and live and 2,3 and 4 times nothing but i didnt know what the humidity was either then when i finally bought a hydrometer the humidity was at 30 to 40% and thats why i had low hatch rates but with my last 2 here i have had 5 hatch out both times and now it looks like i might have 8 this time so it takes a while
