    and I'm just waiting to see what happens next! Actually, I'm happy I'll be going to bed soon, then I won't be thinking about the chicks hatching once I get to sleep......Worried about the humidity.....65% for lockdown is good right?

    Thanks for the advice! It is most appreciated! This morning, more pips, no chicks hatched out yet though, but I did have to leave for work at 7:20, so who knows what I'll find when I get home....

    One chick had really opened a nice crack in the egg though....And I heard peeping......

    Crossing my fingers! I'm so glad I'm at work......That way, I can't run down and look and worry all day! LOL

    I'd stay at 65%, you should be good there.
