    Four days is awfully early. I hope they hatch for you. Keep us posted.

    Maybe they will be ok.I always mark with #2 pencil on top of egg's when they due to go to hatch stage.It doesnt hurt the egg's at all.Never use ink or marker's though.Let Us know how they doo good luck.

    thanks everyone i hope the hatch it was 36 eggs kinda an expensive loss if they dont...i did roll them yesterday and today knowing that might help but the humdity was already raised hope they make it...
     
  6. They will be fine. You might want to decrease the humidity until you see the first pip...then up it back up to around 60%.
