Ok, my eggs have been in the bator for 18 days. Since I put them in at night, I'm thinking Day 18 actually starts around midnight tonight, technically. I have 6 or so eggs that have actually developed, and I'm praying they hatch. I killed the other 14 eggs somehow. Anyway, I need some info. I'm hatching Silkies in an LG still air. I've kept the temp between 99.5 and 101. Humidity has been 30-40, though right now it's more like 50. I need the humidity at around 60-70% right? Do I need to put in the red plugs in the top? Should I just lie the eggs on the wire bottom, leave them in the turner (but turn it off), or something else? How often will I need to put in water? And the BIG question. I know that all these eggs have been in for 18 days- BUT, two of the eggs came from a friend who reached under a broody hen and handed me the eggs. They're a few days ahead on everything, development wise. Anything different I need to do for them? I am so nervous, and so desperate for at least one of these eggs to hatch. I don't want to screw up. I've got 5 eggs I know 100% are alive- those contain 2 buff Silkies, and 4 either Silkies or Showgirls. Please let me know any tips that could help me. I know not to open the bator during lockdown, but beyond that... My nervousness is erasing all the info I got while reading threads on here!
