    I want to make sure I am doing this correctly as I am new at this...
    using a brinsea octagon advance with humidity pump
    we set eggs on March 9th in the morning.. if I cam counting correctly I lockdown tomorrow..
    Temp has been steady at 99.6
    humidity was an average of 44%
    tomorrow for lockdown I need to:
    -take off the turner
    -raise humidity to 65% (or does it need to be higher??)
    -remove the egg dividers

    Anything else???
    DO NOT OPEN AGAIN....

    THANKS

    It sounds to me like you are right on track to a successful hatch


    Good luck

    Yup you got it...keep your humidity at 65% low end and no higher than 75%....once pipping zipping and hatching begins, your humidity will go up so I always shoot for around 70% steady.

    Good luck with the hatch!
