    Had two eggs du 4 days before the other eggs.
    Made a hatcher with a 5 gallon bucket, bath towel in the bottom, 60 watt light and sponges for humidity.
    Temp and humidity have been pretty consistant. 100 and 60 humidity.
    Today is hatch day and nothing happening.
    I have tin foil over the top but does not toally close it off.
    Am worried that the humdity may not be accurate...................
    I candled prior to putting the aggs in and saw a nice air cell and the rest was black.
    Just hope I have not screwed up with my homemade hatcher.
    Keep telling myself if they are meant to hatch they will.
    Alittle worried if I shoud close up the top more.
    Sorry, trying to think this threw and coming up ziltch...
    Any feedback or has anyone else treid this successfully.
    Maybe I should up the humidity?
    Thank You
