I get 90-95% hatches with my own eggs. I can't say I have ever had 100% (can't think of any, at least...) I have even gotten 90% from shipped eggs. I think it has a lot to do with incubator cleanliness, temperature stability, and of course flock health/fertility. Once I got my ova easy 380 with the humidity pump, I just set eggs and forget about them... no skill involved. In the summer months here I do dry incubation... that is, no extra humidity added until they go into the hatcher. I hatch in a hovaBator 1588 Genesis to keep the cabinet clean, I wash and sanitize the cabinet once a month anyway and the hatcherBator every hatch.Edited by Sahwithchicks - 1/28/16 at 10:47am
