    After having no hatchers last time I incubated 6 eggs im very worried im going to get no hatchers this time too [​IMG]. I have 2 that I think are slightly moving, should I be able to see lots of movement? (are my eyes playing tricks on me) and im on day 20 is there anything I could be doing, my humidity is a bit low at 62% when I was hoping for 65% but my incubator is full of tubs of water and cant fit any more in. I cant stop watching I know that a watch pot never boils but I am so wanting something to happen this time.

    Thanks for all your replys, my incubator is a homemade one it is still air and doesnt have a thermostat im using a dimmer switch on a light bulb to control the temp so its not looking too good all I can do is cross my fingers. I think I can see slight movement but would it be more noticeable at 20 days?
