If i can fit it in my tiny bator lol thanks for postinf your awesome tips!

I'm glad I can help😊 during lockdown I keep my bator around 65% and 70% humidity. I use a thermometer\humidity meter I bought at walmart but here's a link to one on ebayhttp://m.ebay.com/itm/DIGITAL-TEMPERATURE-HUMIDITY-MONITOR-THERMOMETER-FOR-HOME-OR-EGG-INCUBATORS-/281737496758?nav=SEARCH

so my incubator came in finally! I can't wait to see how it works! Hopefully good! After being on for six days my BO cross eggs will be 9 days into incubation and will be going in the bator. Right now those egg are in my cooler bator August 1st they have to be moved to this new bator so I can have my homemade bator for my "more important" Amerucana eggs! I'll keep this updated!

Out of the dozen BO mixes 5 went into lockdown and four hatched successfully. One pipped zipped got stuck and died sad.png I don't interfere with my eggs I let nature take it's corse. My incubator ran wonderfully and I'm happy to have the four cuties🐣 I've got 3 more BBxRIR eggs that are hatching on Sunday. Also on the 21st I have amerucanas and olive eggers hatching in my new incubator so far all 12 are fertile and doing great! I have another thread for my other incubator. Thanks for following along!

Sorry about the one you lost, but that's good news otherwise!
