    On day 19/currently in lockdown.
    Humidity was 50% so I went in to add some warm water.

    A few drops splashed on 2 eggs.

    Are they going to be okay? I'm thinking so but I wanted to see if anyone knows anything from experience.

    Thanks!

    Sounds great! If there is water on them then you can just wipe it off,but they'll be fine.

    I just checked, they are dry now. Oh my goodness this is nerve wracking. I want to just ask them if they are okay. Wish I had laser vision and I could see if they were alive. Temp has been a constant struggle with my hovabator 1602N.

    Some people mist their eggs during incubation. A bit of water will not hurt the hatch

    I know exactly how you feel, I've never had chickens and I'm incubating eggs rn that I put in on April 3. I have the hovabator 1582 and I'm constantly adjusting the temp, good luck with the hatch!
