    Do you spray hatching eggs with warm water to soften the egg, making it easier for hatching?

    No, do not spray the eggs with water. It will allow bacteria to enter into the egg through the shell. When lockdown time comes, up the humidity in the incubater to somewhere around 50-60%. Good luck!
