    Hello :) I'm just wondering if there are any people from southeastern Wisconsin that incubate bantam eggs. What is the correct humidity level for this part of the state? My good friend has had little success hatching her silkie/frizzle eggs. She has a good quality 'bator, and has tried the humidity level at 40%, 50%, and 60%, all to no avail. They make it just to the pipping stage, then die. She's obviously very frustrated, and we feel bad for the poor little chicks. She's doing everything right, as far as temperature and turning, but still no luck. :/
