    i have 21 serama eggs in the bator...i read on one website that you are not suppose to increase the humidty on day 18 with serama eggs like you do with other breeds...is this true?

    I just hatched out a Serama egg two days ago on 62 % humidity and it did great [​IMG] Popped right out and didn't take the tiny guy long at all! I will be hatching more tho so this would be helpful to know.

    The advice I got was 55%-60% day 0-17 and 62%-65% thereafter. I got this advice from our resident well known serama expert. [​IMG] Good Luck
