    I'm on day 19 of incubation, day 2 of lockdown; there is no movement with my eggs. They were all developed when I closed everything up, is this normal or ok? Should I be worried? Help...

    Nerves. take deep breaths, several of them. Chick hatching is quite suspenseful and addictive as I've learned myself. It's too early to worry......period.
    Make sure the temp and humidity is right and let em hatch.....[​IMG]
    I'm on day 20 and I know what you're feeling, just relax and let the chickies hatch.
    good luck [​IMG]

    I've never seen any rocking or anything. All of a sudden a chirp is heard and then...[​IMG] Also, none of my eggs ever hatched on time.

    Thank you all!! I just keep reading about all these "pips" & "rocking" other's eggs are doing & I thought there could be something wrong with my bator or with what I did. my temp stays around 99-100 & my humidity is between 55-65 or so... is this ok? I did a dry hatch in the beginning with the humidity between 25-30/35 until day 18... Tomorrow is supposed to be hatch day... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
