hi jayne am i right in thinking humpty is a horsfield :) my temp was a little higger about 31.5, but 30 is good, i found that you could,nt see any thing in the egg at first so best left alone just keep lifting lid to change air in there about day 23 when i candled the eggs 1 had viens growing in it you can see them easy,this was the egg that hatched the other two never came to any thing,hope this helps a little so you can see if there fertile or not good luck let us know how you get on :)
