Ok eggs in the bator...now im realizing how many dumb questions I have....help.....
Ok so I have an auto turner in my hovabator with a fan, do I need to turn the eggs ever at all?
How do you decrease humidity in a bator? I live in south carolina, and its always humid...
And if I have chicks hatch before the others, but the others are in lock down, what do you do??? Not staggered hatch, just a day or three before and after each other kind of deal?
28 eggs in the bator.....im aiming for 20 hatched but I dont know how many are even fertile so ill be happy if one hatches lol
As long as the turner works you don't need to turn them. You should take it out at lockdown time.
I've heard that adding a sock of rice can help lower humidity if absolutely necessary. Let your bator run with no added water and see what the natural humidity is, then try and keep it around 35%.
If a couple chicks hatch early just leave them in unless the start knocking the other eggs around. In that case pull them out as quickly as you can. They can live on the absorbed yolk for a couple days.
