So what I've learned this go round.
1. Don't put paper towels under eggs over water source. Very effective vapor barrier and my humidity would not go up to save me. By the time I figured this out too late. Many lost to shrink wrap.
2. I did not hook up my contraption for adding for heated moisture. I wil next time.
3 I going to clean the incubator between day 18 and lock down keeping eggs in the styrofoam incubator while doing so. I think there is too much bacteria growing in those 18 days. Could be wrong but shouldn't hurt
4. I'm going to put important information on the pointed part of egg. All information that I was counting on was destroyed at hatch. And remember to write the information down if I have a quitter. This will be important for future hatches if the hen is not giving fertile eggs. Also take a picture of the egg so I remember which were the infertile ones.
5 Something I've learned from at least two fellow hatchers if I ever get an incubator with a removable temperature sensor to some how attach it inside the incubator as I could just as easily left it out as well.
Oh almost forgot that I told a friend that I would take some eggs from his brothers Buff Orpington's when he came back from visiting this weekend so I may be starting the incubator again. Oh darn.
