Hello all, I've just joined tonight to get some advice on my eggs. I've been a chicken owner for almost a year now and use BYC to answer the millions of questions that I've had over the year so thank you all!! I am getting so close to the 21st day so the waiting is KILLING me! This is my first time trying to hatch chicks. Of course as a newbie, I've made a few mistakes and I'm hoping that it won't cost me the entire hatch! Here's my story: On Jan 15th to 19th, I put in 9 eggs total. Only 5 were fertile. I labeled my eggs according to the day they were put in (#15 was put in on the 15th, and so on). Now we have #15, #16, #17, and two #19. They are all in one incubator. Tonight egg #15 and #16 are on "lockdown" where I've moved them to the right side of the incubator on a paper towel for hatching! My issue right now is the humidity. I've had the humidity around 50% the whole time and after reading some more, I wish I did a dry hatch instead. My eggs seem to have a smaller air sac than they should. It looks like they are at day 14 when they're really day 18. So I've been trying to dry out the incubator a bit to increase the air sac in the eggs, but the ones on lockdown need more humidity so..... what do I do? I have been candling every other night because I can't help myself, and thankfully all are still alive and moving. The two on lockdown have been wobbling the egg so I'm hoping they're ok. I worry too much about shrink wrapped eggs and sticky chicks so I have no idea where to have my humidity level at now. With eggs that are at different stages of development... do you have any advice? Sorry it was a long story, but thank you if you reply!
