    I took out the turner last night and it looks like only 4 eggs are going to hatch [​IMG] . They are officially 19 days and one hour old. I added water in the tray and the humity is at 60%, is that enough? I also had a question. I candled them last night also when I took out the turner and I can still see the veins, and the chick moving. Is that normal on day 18? Thanks for the help!

    I thought that the humidity needed to be at least 70% on last few days...see what everyone else says.

    Yes, you need to get your humidity up to around 70-75% at this point, otherwise the membrane will shrink-wrap the chicks and they won't be able to hatch.
