    So - my friend brought a Hovabator 1620 w/turning rack and 25 hatching eggs. (...and you guys call yourselves enablers! ha! )
    Temp. holding at just under 100 - humidity holding at just under 50. These conditions remained steady for 24 hours so I set this AM.

    The Plan: peek in the window too often and tweak temp +/or humidity if necessary. Hands off as much as possible. Bump humidity to 70% and lockdown on the 18th. Hands off period.

    Call my friend around the 20th/21st and make those horrid squeaky girl noises as best I can when they hatch and then post pics for you guys.

    Sound okay?
