    Looks good to me

    The only thing you can do is wait

    sometimes takes more time

    give them 2 days more

    you should see something happening in the next 24 hours

    I second then mention that you wait a couple more days. I would suggest that it would not hurt to take the humidity up another 5% if you can. I sure would not hurt.

    What I tell my friends is that when it comes to hatching.....One Must Practice Patience.

    Good Luck on your hatch.
