    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    Ok I set the eggs at 4:33 on Dec 4.

    We are getting down to the wire and I am leaving town tonight for 1-2 days. I have an egg sitter but I am second, third and fourth guessing myself about the day. [​IMG]

    Please help me. What day is it? [​IMG]

    Tonya

    P.S. Besides Friday Dec 21, 2007 and the first day of winter.... [​IMG]

    I would consider day 1 as December 5. I would turn them tonight and then bump the humidity and stop turning tomorrow morning. This way your egg sitter wont have to do anything except check the temp and humidity. Good luck. Jenn

    Do you think I can bump the humidity tonight? Or should I have him add water tomorrow?

    If you are leaving tonight go ahead, it wont be that big of a deal considering you set them in the afternoon anyway. You did it right, you wont be running to the bator every 2 minutes the next few days to see nothing happening..lol That is the worst part about the last 3 days. Good luck and have a nice trip.
