    I have a staggered hatch and I was wondering about great success stories because I m on day 18 and I will only raise humidity up tp 50 or 55 % for 2 eggs to hatch rather than 14 eggs hatching.

    That's what I did for the disaster hatch, never bumped the humidity above 55% for the majority of the hatch. Moved a few and used a higher humidity in the hatcher and didn't like the outcome there nearly as well.

    The ones in the dryer bator hatched more cleanly.
