    I am on day 14 with 4 developing Serama eggs. I have a LG forced air and have kept the temp at a pretty steady 99.5. The humidity has run at 45% These are not shipped eggs, I drove over and picked them up from Chickenaddict. Should I stop the turner on day 16 or wait until day 18? What is the general Serama community concensus?

    I stopped turning on day 16 and they came on day 18 and 19. I also kept the humidity at 65%. That's just how we did it, someone may have better advice.

    Every Serama we ever hatched came early (Day 17-19) so I guess that's why we always stopped turning early.

    interesting! Is that just serama's or do others come early as well? I am doing OEGB soon, just wondering~

    Best of luck with them. I so love them and want some!!!

    Schultz, did you keep the humidity at 65% after lockdown or was it that high before?

    I only up the humidity at lockdown and these are the only birds that have come early for us, the rest came like all other chickens, including our OEGB.
