    I am copying Austin on his thread...except I am doing it late....didn't want to steal his spot light [​IMG]
    2 sebastopol eggs

    Day 22 -- candled & misted -- 2 viable [​IMG]
    Day 23 -- candled & misted -- 2 viable [​IMG]
    Day 24 -- candled & misted -- 2 viable [​IMG]
    Day 25 -- candled & misted -- 2 viable [​IMG]
    Day 26 -- candled & misted -- 2 viable [​IMG]
    Day 27 -- candled & misted -- 2 viable [​IMG]
    Day 28 -- candled & misted -- 2 viable [​IMG]
    Day 29 -- candled & misted -- 2 viable [​IMG] UPDATE: 1 pipped internally (more info on last post)
    Day 30 -- NOW external pip on the same egg....nothing yet as of 8am on the other egg...
    -- pm: the other egg is no longer alive...it was pointing in the wrong direction...opposite the air cell..pointing on shallow end of air cell. [​IMG]

    Day 31 -- One egg left...from about 7 am it started zipping fast...its already half way there...

    I helped just to zip the rest of the way around because she was no longer turning..got to a spot where there was no leverage to help her turn...put her back in the incubator and she hatched out on her own after that....

    I don' thave any sebs yet....I just bought some off of some people....I know they are white because these people only have whites..but I think at least one of the people have a couple smooth breasted geese so I am hoping I get curly....as curly as they can get [​IMG]

    We'll see.

    Oh my goodness I've never made it this far....I am getting very paranoid!!!

    Ok....so tomorrow is day 25....Do I go ahead and turn for day 25 and then stop......or just tonight's the last night turning (day 24)?

    eeeeeeeekk........(biting nails)

    I've got to keep myself busy these last four to six days .......

    when do I increase humidity...after external pip right?

    trn tomorrow then dont turn day 26, boost the humidity when u stop turning, and mist daily untill u ge the irst pip then dont open the bator unless your humidity is low then in that case i would open it and fill the water and mist the eggs quickly

    So is tomorrow supposed to be the pipping day (for most)? I know it can vary but I'd like to see what you all have experienced...for sebastopols.
