    I have an egg on day 17 that has a loose air sack. I am thinking I could bring the egg inside, put it pointy end down so the air sack is where it should be, and let it hatch. Is this a good idea? How would I get the humidity and heat right without an incubater ( I don't have one)?

    Quote:You won't get the temp and humidity right without an incubator, if it's under a broody, leave it there, she can do a much better job than any human can, if it won't hatch under her it won't hatch even IN an incubator...

    Sounds like you should just leave it where it is. By the time you got an incubator together and humidity/temp right it would be too late.
