    What day were you on? What kind of incubator were you using? Did you candle the eggs before lockdown? Personally, I need the humidity to be a bit higher where I am for a good hatch at the end. But humidity seems to vary from one person to another. More information may help us to help you.

    they are 3 days over due now [​IMG] the incubator is just a styrofoam one...i think this is probably the problem, but then the temperature and humidity are spot on...oh i just have no idea [​IMG]

    Quote:Have you turned them? Is the incubator in a room with little temperature fluctuation?
