Tips for incubating eggs please. :)

post #1 of 5

It's my first time incubating eggs and I am setting my eggs in a hour or so. Can't wait! Any good tips about incubating I should know? :P

keep the temp over 99 below 102 and keep humidity between 40-50

Okay thanks.

If your incubator is still air shoot for 101 at the top of the egg.

If your incubator is forced air shoot for 99.5 at top of egg.

Most thermostats/temp indicators are close but be sure to check with a secondary thermometer that you know is accurate.

This is my preference I dry incubate for the first 18 day. The raise humidity 65 to 70 for hatch. This seems to work for my situation.

Good luck
