    what day are you on?
    what is humidity at?
    are the turners turned off?

    If you have a turner in there and it is hatch time, the turner should be taken out and the eggs laid down or set upright in cut down cartons.

    On the MN prairie.
    Unplug the turner. You should also be able to remove it from the incubator. This should be done when you lock down your incubator for the hatch.


    It means take an egg carton. Cut off the top. Then take the part that holds the eggs, cut it down a bit so the chicks have room to hatch out. If I were you, I'd just let the eggs lay on their sides in the incubator and not worry about the egg carton thing .

    i am very confused

    are you doing a staggered hatch? eggs set on different days?

    Me too



    The count down on the incubators start at day 21 and count down to hatch day, so the 2 basically means 2 days to hatch BUT most of them don't take into consideration countdown starts 24 hours AFTER set so it sounds like they are on day 20 of incubation.
