hi

not sure if day 17 18 or 20

I dont know if should leave it n wait till the 25 days

or open it , candle check if ok eggs or bad eggs add humidfier and add water?

should open or just leave it?

if open, should look like the day 19 eggs? msolt y black n a smal air socket

if blood ring or oozing, take outside house, open, if pop like balloon its good? if doesnt explode its bad?

also add humdifier, I dont got much space in there, so rest it on top of eggs?

and add a litle botle lid of water at the botom of the incubator , then close incubator, wait 5 minutes until see if it stays I gues 65 humidity since its proly lockdown?

and keep adding until 65 humidity?

sory stil new

also been stresed to do proper

These are chicken eggs, right? So they should hatch on day 21.

If you know it's at least day 17, you can just leave them.
Or you can candle and check the eggs.
Either one is probably fine.

if blood ring or oozing, take outside house, open, if pop like balloon its good? if doesnt explode its bad?
Eggs with live chicks do not explode. Some rotten eggs explode, some rotten eggs do not explode.

also add humdifier, I dont got much space in there, so rest it on top of eggs?
Probably not on top of eggs.

If you candle eggs and find some bad, then take the bad ones out, that makes more space inside the incubator.

What kind of incubator?

That's probably about right.

Looking at the pictures of your incubator, I think I see a layer of mesh in the bottom. You might be able to pour water into the bottom, under that mesh, so the chicks cannot get themselves into it. (I'm not sure, just guessing from what I see in the pictures.)

If several chicks do hatch, the humidity should go up on its own at that time (from all the wet chicks).

It looks like you add water in the bottom of the incubator below the platform.

Good eggs won't pop, like a balloon, or explode. Only rotten eggs do occasionally if not removed early enough.

55% - 65% humidity at lockdown is ideal.

Chicken eggs hatch on day 21. I've had eggs hatch on day 21, 23, 24, & 25. Earliest hatches I've had were on day 19, & 20.
