    I'm sitting here thinking that tomorrow is day number 14.

    Should they be hatching by now? When should they start/end??? [​IMG]

    What humidity should I set it at? I almost lost my chicks because the humidity was too low...they started hatching 2 days early so I wasn't ready...

    Are we talking buttons? Buttons take 16 days to hatch but can be 18 even. Day 14 is usual the day you stop turning eggs and crank up the humidity making sure you don't open the incubator if you can help it.
