info on incubating eggs first time

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was wanting to try to incubate a few eggs in the next few weeks or so and I am new to owning chickens. I get about 2 to 3 eggs a day. When I collect the eggs everyday do I need to put the in an incubator or just let them sit at room temp for a few days? What temp does it need to stay at? What humidity does it need to be at? Dose this need to change after so many days or stay same to hatching day? Do I need to keep a bowl of water or a sponge in there or what's the best way to keep the humidity in there? Thank you

In addition to the link chicken4prez has given you, there is a lot of information in the Learning Center on hatching/incubating eggs that could be helpful.

 

Good luck!
