    Mine went into lock down this morning, the humidity is around 75%. I have 3 thermometers and they're all at around the same temp, kinda low but within range.

    I'm in lockdown too. Have 6 out of original 12 looking to hatch. Humidity looks good, temp looks good, tomorrow should be the day. It's hard not to do anything except watch & wait, I really gotta sit on my hands. Did I mention how impatient I am...
