    Do you see pips?

    Is there sufficient venilation?

    How is the temp?

    Humidity?

    Do you feel movement in the eggs?

    yep they are getting enough venitaltion
    temp has been what its always been. They have been moving so thats a good sign . plenty of water I have to keep checking it though. So I might have to check it again. Its not too hot in there the temps about 100. It maintains pretty good.
    Knowing my luck ive got duds or they died?

    If they are moving, let them move [​IMG]

    Did you let the eggs settle for at least a couple hours before setting them in the incubator?
