    I can't even believe we have made it this far...we have 3 pippers now! I know we have a long way to go as they aren't out yet but can't help but be excited!!!

    Question: I read you should lower the temp on hatch day to 95 degrees. I have mine at 99.5 right now. Should I lower it now? What do you all do w/temp on hatch day or once pipping starts?

    Congrats!!! I kept mine at 99.5 with no problems but the humidity I increased to 68%. I guess it is different for everyone but that is what worked for us.

    He is a wild little guy. So much for not turning the eggs the last few days before hatching...this one has single handly spun and turned all the eggs several times including the ones that are pipping...LOL....he is crazy!
