    wrong too and they all still lived and hatched. I had temp spikes, too low temps, huge humidity spikes and I opened the lid many many times while the hatch was in progress. Go figure to get 100% hatch rate.

    Now, if I can just get them past the first couple of weeks, I will be so happy!!!

    No I had 21 after taking 5 infertiles out on day 10.

    Oh forgot to add I am using a LG still air incubator. And if that wasn't enough, all but 4 where refrigerated for almost 3 weeks at 45 degrees and I didn't rotate them at all while they were in the fridge.

    I sure am counting my 21 blessing.

    How low were your too-low temps? And for how long? I had some in an LG that I've since moved to my new Brinsea Eco20. I candled before I switched them and had some veining but I think they were not high enough because development didn't seem as far along as it should've been by now (last night was Day 5...?)

    Thanks
