Lock Down at Day 25

IncubatorI candled the eggs a couple of days ago and only 2 were fertile, so this whole incubator only has 2 little eggs in it. The eggs don’t get turned any more, the air sac will stabilise and get smaller and become more diagonal in the shell in the lead up to the birds pipping. I have added water to both the channels to try and get the humidity over 70% to ensure the membranes don’t dry out and trap the birds. Over the weekend we may start to hear some sounds from the birds, apparently whistling at them helps.
