    we keep ours right around 73% but it has got to 75% on occasion.I have cracked it open a hair and watched it very close until it drops back to where I want it..usually back down within a few minutes

    Yes, they are. I just feel nervous cause it's my first"hatch"

    I am on day 19.......think i saw something move......bitting nails.......need a drink.......can't sleep.......possible nightmares~

    Does anyone have an isea on when movement should start. I candled day 12 and they all looked good. This is stressful

    Take a sleeping pill or a Benadryl, and go to bed woman! It does no good to stare at them. I know from experience! [​IMG]

    The best hatch I've ever had was the one I ignored. Let Mother Nature take over now.
