    So I have several viable eggs in my bator. One is starting to chirp...hasn't pipped or zipped yet, but is wiggling. What should the humidity be for it to be safe for that one and the others that aren't ready yet? Thank you!!

    I take it you didn't set them the same day.
    Have you candled to see what size the air cells are?

    To be on the safe side, get it up around 60%+ for the one about to hatch. Do you know how many days the others are behind?

    Thank you. No they weren't set on the same day. The others are only a few days behind. I have it about 60% now. It has been between 20 and 30%.

    I did candle, and the air sac looks good on the one that is hatching. Well, they all look good.
