    day 16 getting close to lock down getting excited is it possible to have too much humidity when you go in to lock down?

    I have been monitoring the air sac and it has been progressing quite well.

    I got thiese eggs from my neighbor so most will be mix breeds but some are from his naked neck chickens that he has penned separate I'm excited about those.

    How exciting!! Whistle or chirp to it now and then, and see if it responds. (just for fun!)

    Good luck on your hatch.
