    I cannot help you with the humidity problems, but I know that they can hear you through the incubator, at least mine can, whenever I am hatching. I will talk to them, through the closed incubator and I can hear them chirping back at me. I guess that it may depend on what type of incubator that you have, but mine have always heard me talking to them and chirped back at me.

    You don't have to open the bator (please do NOT open the bator). They can hear you. I whistle at my eggs and they will peep back during a hatch.

    You stay away from opening that incubator!!...lol...They can hear you, just talk to them...I'm on the morning of day 20 for some and I have 2 pips so far out of 13, day 19 for 5 eggs so I'm heading out shopping all day!!! [​IMG]

    Your humidity is ok, if you have a kids vaporizer around the house try using it near the bator if you want to up the humidity in the room, sometimes that helps..I do it here in my kitchen in the winter months when I am hatching...once they start pipping & hatching the humidity should rise more...

    You have to wait and see. Whistle at them and see if you can stir up a peep from one.
