You'll be fine but I would make sure the humidity is up when you go to work again. Maybe put in another wet sponge because they will be OK even if it goes to 65 or even 70

Hope your little chickies come out... and then you can post pictues



and, until they pip, the humidity isn't crucial - but once the egg is open, then humidity matters!

I will!! It's really hard to see inside with the Brinsea. I bought mine off ebay, a used one, the plastic is not as clear as the plexiglass. Have laready looked at 0500 and nothing yet, thought I heard a chirping??? or am I losing it
