    Hi,
    New to the forum and its my first hatch but wanted to share that 2 of my 3 remaining Cayuga eggs hatched today [​IMG]

    The other egg hasn't externally pipped - but I have seen movement. I'll keep the 2 ducklings in the incubator for as long as possible but I was wondering about the humidity whether it will be ok its about 82% at the moment or whether I should remove some of the water.

    I don't know what to do in terms of the other egg. We have just reached hatch day today, I was doing to give it a couple more days and when I had to remove the ducklings mist the egg so it doesn't dry out. Does this sound ok?

    thanks
    Jo
