So I just bought the 4250 model Farm Innovator Incubator with the automatic egg turner at Tractor Supply because I am wanting to hatch eggs for an agricultural project. I have had chickens all my life, I have just never hatched my own. I ordered some hatching eggs offline and I am also going to use some from my own coop. What I wanted to know was:
~What temperature is ideal for incubation?
~What humidity(s) are ideal?
~How long can eggs sit before they are considered infertile?
~Should eggs be cleaned before incubation?
~Does the incubator need to be cleaned if it is brand new?
~Do eggs need to sit before incubation? (I have heard that ordered eggs need to 'settle' before you place them in the incubator..)
I have tried to research all this information, but every website seems to say something different.
