Lockdown questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

This is my first time incubating and hatching my chicken eggs...so I have 4 questions I'm not sure about..

 

 

 On day 18, when I take the egg turner out and lay the eggs in the bator:

 

1) Does the temperature stay the same as when incubating or does it change?

 

2) I know the humidity is raised 65%-75%, right?

 

3)  Does the fan stay on or do I turn it off?

 

4) How do the chick dry off if the humidity and temp is high is so high?

 

 

Thank you

Temp stays the same or can drop 0.5-1.0 F the last day.

Humidity is higher, yes.

Fan stays on or temps will stratify.

They'll dry out.
