    You need to get your humidity up if it is still low. Use one of the ventilation holes to get some water in. You could use a straw or aquarium tubing. Good Luck [​IMG]

    IMPORTANT ~ don't open the top. Do you have a way to squirt some warm water down in the vent holes to bring your humidity back up?

    Good luck!

    Keep your humidity intact, watch your temp, and keep the lid on. What day are you on?

    Edit...see day 19 in the title. Only thing left to do right now is wait it out.

    Remember when it hatches, don't open the lid. Leave it alone until all the others have hatched or you are sure that any remaining ones won't hatch. And keep a watch on the humidity, you might have to add more warm water to keep it at the correct level.
