    Advice for hovabator 1588
    I've tried dry method , humidity was about 20-30 percent for the first 18 days then 40-55 percent for lockdown! 1 out of 20 hatched. This time 27 eggs and humidity 30 -40 percent tip lockdown then 40-55 percent! I am on day 22 and 3 pipped last night!!!!

    Have you calibrated your hygrometer and thermometer? I find this useful and helpful between each hatch!
