    Hello,
    I'm new to the page. I own a small non profit parrot rescue. Due to unforseen circumstances I ended up having to incubate my muscovey hens eggs. There was 8 total. One died immediately and 6 died a week later. Due to incubator malfunction and too high humidity. I have been following a couple articles on this site. I dried the bator and have did the daily misting. The embryo is about 28 to 31 days old. Air sack looks great. Today the egg started rolling to the same spot when turned. Humidity went from 30 percent to around 60 percent due to rain.

    I really want this babu to make it. Any suggestions, help truely needed. I want to try to insure the best hatch environment possible. When should I lock down, will the spike in humidity be a problem??
    T.y.

    Lockdown on day 32, boost the humidity to 65-75%, stop turning and cross your fingers :fl!

    Best of luck with your little guy....
