How many people dry hatch?

Do many of you dry hatch until day 18? I don't but would like to hear how others get on with it.

I might try it next time. Saves opening the incubator and moving eggs etc. I usually don't bother candling until day 18 anyway.

Ya, I just had a 100 % hatch using the dry hatch method. Before I used to add water every few days but decided to see how a dry hatch would work, best hatch I ever had

What is going wrong when the birds get all sticker in the shell? It goes hard like glue.
