correct humidity in new incubator?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
First time using an incubator. It is a forced air with a fan.
I am seeing different info that humidity should be between 35 to 40 and then another says 50.

Help please

It all depends on what works for you. People have success with different rates of humidity. This is how I do it: http://letsraisechickens.weebly.com/blog/throw-away-those-incubator-manuals-understanding-and-controlling-humidity
