    Alright, my lone egg is now in lockdown (Still-Air Hovabator)!

    Humididty is 70% and the temp is about 100. Should I see anything by now? There is no movement, peeps, or pips...

    I am not very experienced but I thought the same thing! And I think I had every variation from a quick chick to a very slow hatcher who pipped on the wrong end, to one that never made it. The only problem you have is one baby. You need to get a her a friend after she hatches or YOU will have to be her friend!

    I am assuming your 'lockdown' was on day 18. No, you probably won't see anything until day 20 or 21.
