    HI! Could someone tell me what things I need to do for lock down, like humidity, does the egg have to have the point pointed down. Also I am scared I may have to help a chick out, what would I have to do?

    I put the humidity high around 80%. put something down to make clean up easier and easy for the chicks to walk on. The eggs can lay on the mesh or what ever is in the bottom. For helping them out you will get many opinions. I do if they are stuck just get the humidity high.
